Swimming Pool Full Flow 3 Way Valve
The valve has been specifically designed for the swimming pool industry in pressure pipe installations.
A robust rust free ABS body with GF Noryl internals, combined with all stainless steel metal parts for a high quality valve.
The ABS body has both 1.5" or 2" pipe sizes on all ports, simply insert your pipe to the female solvent end for 1.5" or use the valve pipe as the male into a female 2" solvent socket.
This valve is perfect for all plantroom installations and comes with a useful safety indicator clamp which when installed on the correct port specific to your installation will give a physical & visual warning to stop accidental pump damage on pre pump installation of the valve due to the pump being starved of water in an accidental valve closure, or if the valve is fitted post pump on the pressured side of the system, a dangerous build up of pressure which could lead to serious damage to your plantroom equipment.
This valve can be fully dismantled from the valve body for servicing or debris removal.
The handle is also a quick visual indication of the valves position, as there is a closed indicator arrow on the handle. This valve can be opened or closed in very small incriments simply by pressing down on the back on the handle and rotating to your required position.
We would also recommend an engineers secret tool called 'Magic Lube', this is a highly viscous long term silicone lubricant which is perfect for sealing the O-rings and unions of your valve, simply smear onto your o rings for a perfect seal. Can also be used on pump basket O-rings or filter lid O-rings.
Please be aware that swimming pool pipe work is sized from the INSIDE and subsequently LOOKS bigger from the outside (most people wrongly believe their pipe work is 2"). We have placed a picture under the PDF download section showing the 2 common sizes in relation to everyday standard AA & 9V Duracell batteries as an easily referable scale.
Please see our downloads section for the valves installation instructions along with exploded views of all the various fittings showing the different configurations for sockets, threads, male & female fittings.
ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is an extremely robust thermoplastic material which is ideal for swimming pool installations.
