Does not prevent gravity feeding

Comments about 3/4"" Threaded Swing Check Valve, Lead Free:

Statement from Technical Support... "You really have to go with the heavier flow controls to prevent gravity feeding, the Taco 218-3 or Bell & Gossett 107034, for example."

search for "flow controls" instead of "check valve"

      The temperature rating on this check valve is 180 degrees Fahrenheit so it would not work in a steam application

    Q:

    Can I use this 1 1/4 threaded swing check valve by Hydrovalve on a ram pump project as demnostrated in youtube.com
    Asked on 6/28/2013 by Rolando from Los Angeles,CA

    1 answer

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      If the operating pressure of the hydraulic ram does not exceed the pressure of the check valve then yes, it will work. If the hydraulic pressure in the ram exceeds the operating pressure of the valve it will not work.
      To answer the question the user needs to understand the pressures involved.

    Q:

    can this valve be installed in a city water line to prevent backflow and will I get excessive pressure drop through valve?
    Asked on 6/24/2013 by Bill from Goodland, Kansas

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      No excessive pressure drop. It will prevent back flow, but most inspectors will not accept on a domestic water supply.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The item is made of Bronze and hence environmentally safe.
      Yes you can use in the city Waterline. And Yes, there is very negligible
      pressure drop.
      The valve will close when the flow is reversed( due to reverse
      differentials).
      Hope This answer your concerns.

      A:

      No, you will not notice any pressure drop or change whatsoever. The valve is used to precent backflow, if it does not, then the valve is not operating correctly. drVinnie

    Q:

    Can this valve be disabled to temporally allow flow in both directions?
    Asked on 6/7/2013 by Andy from Nottingham, NH

    2 answers

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The valve diaphragm( made of Bronze) inside the valve floats vertically
      due to gravity. The valve opens in the direction indicated due to forward
      water pressure . But it shuts closes in the opposite direction to prevent
      back flow.
      Hence the water cannot flow in both direction.
      You may need a solenoid operated valve to meet your needs to disable for
      your application.

  • 1" Threaded Swing Check Valve

    Q:

    I have a well and pressure tank. The pump appears to come on regularly although no water is being used. The tank is maintained at about 40-45 psi. The pump should only come on if the pressure goes below 40 psi. There does not appear to be a check valve in the system. If there is one someplace that I have not seen, it appears to not be working (maybe there is one at the pump). I am considering using this valve so that the pump does not cycle when it does not need to. Will this valve work this?

      A:

      Yes, this valve should work for you.

      Answered on 4/19/2011 by PexSupply Staff from NY
    • A:

      You most likely have a fautly foot valve. If your pump is a submersible(in the well), the "foot" valve should be located in the well at the connection between the pump and the tubing. If your pump is located external to the well, then there is normally a foot valve at the bottom of your "in-well" tubing, at the inlet strainer. You can install a check valve at the water tank to prevent losss of pressure, but there is the risk that your pump may loose it's prime during periods of no water usage.

      You could make a short section of horizontal pipe and mount it there. Then continue your pipe in the former direction.
