If you have a leaking duct or busted pipe, it’s may be time to repair your plumbing for better water pressure and flow. Our assortment of valves can do the trick.
Valves are devices that regulate the movement of fluids through pipes and ducts. From the bathroom to the kitchen to the laundry room, your home plumbing system needs the right valves to direct pressure the right direction and keep water flowing.
There are two basic valve styles – the check valve and stop valve. Both valve styles provide pressure relief and control for the various plumbing systems, including a modern PEX manifold, in residential or commercial buildings.
Check valves prevent flow in the opposite direction. These are critical valves that ensure proper operation and prevent damage from reverse flows. The most common check valves, also known as backflow preventers, include swing valves, ball valves, silent valves and vacuum breaker valves.
Stop valves, also known as shut-off valves, are used to cut off or partially halt the flow of fluids. To control pressure conditions in plumbing, consider common stop valves like straight stop valves, gate valves, angle stop valves and compression valves. Three-way diverter valves are helpful to redirect and regulate fluids in the multiple directions.
Material Makes A Difference
Valves are typically made of PEX plastic or copper, brass and steel. When choosing your valve, determine what kind of fluid (gas, solids or liquids) will be passing through and the type of pipe that needs the valve. Iron, brass and bronze valves are low-cost but corrode easily with no resistance. Plastic valves are the most versatile and strong valve material option for almost any job because of its ability to handle high temperatures, chemical resistance and various pressures.
