Float Valve
Valve uses fluid pressure, as opposed to a lever arm and ball, as the force to close the valve. The valve body is made of durable glass-filled nylon 6/6. Internal parts are of ABS plastic, silicone, and stainless steel. When properly installed, the valve will meet anti-siphon requirements. Automatically maintains desired water level in open tanks. Provides positive shut-off. Operating pressure: 1/2" - 8 - 65; 1" - 8 - 100 lbs. Flow rate approximately 80% of flow supplied to valve. 1", 40 psi will produce approx. 60 GPM; 1/2", 40 psi will produce approx. 19 GPM. Not FDA or NSF compliant. For use with water only, not for use with chemicals. Universal valves withstand temperatures up to 175°F.

      Jim thinks this product deserves a         ranking.

      I purchased two of these 1" high-temp valves back in 2006 from US Plastics. They have worked flawlessly and are the closest thing to "solid state" that you can get with a float valve. I did take one apart one time to clean it (ended up not needing it) and broke the float clip (P/N P10). From what I have read elsewhere this is not uncommon and it looks like the only place to find a new clip is at the Hudson Valve web site (clip less than 50 cents and shipping $5). Wish US Plastics or other dealers would sell pin, or Hudson Valve would throw them in a USPS first-class envelope and skip the $5 shipping box.
