I needed a demand watering system for my pet pig who drinks a lot of water. I installed this device on his watering bowl so that it will automatically re-fill he bowl when he takes a drink.

Great in price and awesome that it was easy to find in the store to save on shipping. Went in quick, and worked like charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Counselor You can't find one in Houston for your fountain
I built a fountain three years ago that depends on a float valve to keep the reservoir from overfilling. (Because Houston is so humid, no one sells any parts for an evaporative cooler -- they don't work here,) There was no choice but to find it online. My previous one was made of nylon and broke, so i made sure this one was made of brass. My Home Depot is about six miles away and I arranged to pick up the valve there. I was very impressed with how fast and easy the whole transaction had been, from ordering to pickup. Installation of the valve only took about ten minutes. (BTW, the water line is a refrigerator ice maker line hooked up to an outside faucet.)

I always go to Home Depot to get this replacement for my cooler. I know they will have it I have never had to return or replace mid summer.That's why I keep coming back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dml nice little float valve
I'm using this to fill an outdoor water trough for some small animals from a gravity fed supply line. Once mounted it has performing exactly as I needed it to. Every time I've checked it there's about an inch of water in my tiny trough. I'm not sure the variance, but there has always water there, so it's not a worry for me. It's been in use for several months now without an issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WRG Easy change--out on my MasterCool by Champion
It may be too soon to tell, but this promises to surpass the quality of the replacements previously provided by the so-called HVAC experts. The quality of materials is definitely better than the previous floats installed by the pros, and a lot cheaper in price! It was an easy DIY change-out despite the scaling built up on the old unit. After disconnecting the water supply line with a small crescent wrench, you will likely need to hold the old float in place on the inside of the cooler with a second wrench while you loosen the lock nut on the outside of the unit. Be sure to wrap the threads with Teflon tape before reattaching the water supply line. It may be necessary to bend the float arm to achieve the proper water level. Too high and it will allow water to escape through the cooler's overflow tube. Good luck!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JustFixItRight Wow fast intalllation works perfect
The old valve was rusted and leaked like a sieve. After a bit of WD40 and two vise grips the old float valve was removed. That took about 8 minutes including the 5 minutes to let the WD-40 soak in.
Installed the new brass valve in less then a minute or two I was back in my office enjoying the cool air.
After 10 minutes I went out to check if the overflow was pouring out water like it was before and it was completely dry. Thanks Home Depot for another great DIY product.
BTW, this unit was serviced, "by a pro" that the association hired last year. My water billed sky rocketed because he only changed the float and not the valve. Guess if you want it done right you gotta do it yourself.
