Nice valve - adjusts easily By Aaron on 4/20/2014Aaron would recommend this product to a friendGood quality valve. Makes adjusting my Herbie overflow system easy. They are quite expensive, but overall worth it for the ease of adjustment.

EXCELLENT! By Chris on 11/18/2013Chris would recommend this product to a friendHighest quality valves i've had or seen period! Well worth the price and wouldn't purchase any other valves after having these.
Best Gate Valve Around By Anne on 10/20/2013Anne would recommend this product to a friendI've used a few gate valves for different pieces of equipment on my tank and after having one fail and start leaking from the top I ordered this valve in 3/4" threaded fittings. Since this was to replace a valve that was currently running on the tank, I needed it fast. I ordered late Thursday night and had it early Saturday morning.
Installing it was pretty easy and straightforward as you would expect. The valve itself was also the smoothest hate valve I've ever used. It is also nice and tight meaning that I actually feel like I'm moving the gate when I twist the handle. Other valves I've used have turned so freely that it was as if they weren't actually being adjusted (in fact one valve stopped responding to the handle being turned) or others were nearly impossible to turn at all. I will say the one thing I was a little worried about was the amount of resistance I felt when I got the valve almost closed the first time. I actually thought I had cracked the gate but after disassembling the valve (the nuts are a great feature) I found no damage anywhere. After the initial time closing the valve all the way it became just as easy to close the valve as it was to adjust it while it was more open.
Very high-quality gate valve By David on 6/13/2013David would recommend this product to a friendOn the pricey side, but you get what you pay for.
Great valve for flow control By Jeff on 5/4/2013Jeff would recommend this product to a friendKinda spendy but a very well built valve.
Draining By Trojan on 4/7/2013Trojan would recommend this product to a friendI am using two of these for my drain line for my overflow, I was able to dial the amount coming out without the noise of noraml drain lines.
Nice and BIG By Andre on 8/27/2012Andre would recommend this product to a friendI purchased the 1.5" models and the first thing you will notice is the size, next you will turn the handle and see how smooth and easy they turn. Excellent product!
Super Solid By Lucas on 7/2/2012Lucas would recommend this product to a friendI've done a lot of PVC plumbing for not just reefing, but also industrial applications at work, and rarely do you find PVC fittings as sturdy and well built as this, even compared to other Sch 80 parts. This is a great piece of equipment. The ability to disassemble and clean/repair is just icing on the cake for a reefer.
Great Gate Valve By Ben on 4/12/2012Ben would recommend this product to a friendVery well made and robust. Very good at throttle volume control.
Top quality By Chris on 12/14/2011Chris would recommend this product to a friendVery well built valve. None of the wobblines that some cheaper ones have when you turn the dial. This one feels solid not like the shaft is going to twist in half in a moment. It can also be disassembled for service which I find very nice.
Super heavy Duty Valve By Timothy on 10/30/2011Timothy would recommend this product to a friendI run full siphon on my overflow and this valve allows me to precisely set my flow rate with out having to worry about it, Combined with a ball valve for shut off this allows me to have quiet reliable flow into my sump
The golden rule of plumbing is that every job takes three trips to the store. While this can be frustrating locally it can be much worse when shopping online. Being short a fitting or two can delay a plumbing project for days. Here are some quick tips to avoid this.
- Plan your plumbing on paper
- Don't skimp on unions. Unions allow for easy breakdown and maintenance as well as remove the need for precise elbow placement. Use them as often as possible.
- When in doubt order extra. We happily accept returns for a full refund (less shipping) on all unused fittings within one month of purchase. A few extra bucks in return shipping is less frustrating than a project delay.
