Do you have leaking float valves?

Are your stock trough valves leaking?

Does your tank float valve leak?

Leaking valves are annoyingPR Valve1

  • Water is often wasted
  • Pumps are running when not needed and wasting money
  • Flooding around troughs occurs causing erosion

One of the main reasons is excess pressure

  • Sometimes a new pump is fitted and is larger than the original unit
  • The system has been upgraded and the pressures have increased
  • Possible oversight occurred during installation or upgrade

It is not the end of the World

There are several options available to fix the problem

 

  • Fit high pressure float valvesPR Valve2

This works in some cases depending upon the operating pressure

In some cases the flow rate is decreased with high pressure valves

  • Fit a pressure Reducing valve to the mainline at the appropriate location

This will reduce the downstream pressure to the required value and stop over pressurizing the system
