        Quality looks great. Nice long handle, although still tough to turn.

              these big valves are usually quite pricey. these are a real bargain. Just be aware to fasten down securely, preferable to a frame or something with a nice u-bolt. They can be pretty stiff (depending on use) and don't depend on the pipe to support them.

              Heavy duty ball valve

                    This is a very heavy duty ball valve. "Economy" does not seem appropriate. Worked very well. Note, though, that with such a large ball valve, opening and closing requires noticeable force. Another note is that while the valve is designated as 3" (which is what the body is) the ball pass through is somewhat less.

                          This ball valve is very hard to open and close . It takes a very strong person two hands to move the valve.

                          I used this valve to divert flow on a pumping system with low pressure. It is very hard to turn but it does get easier over time. This valve was a very economical way to get the results I needed. Most valves I priced were 3X the price of this one.

                            Q:

                            How do you make this ball valve easier to turn? Can I lubricate it
                            with something? Out of the package it is almost impossible to turn. Once you start turniong it, it becomes somewhat easier but it seems to me it is still way to difficult.

                              I have the same problem. I tried spray silicone and others. I keep a short section of PVC pipe handy to assist in operating the valve.

                              Use the law of levers. Bolt a long lever to the valve, the longer the
                              lever, the more your strength is multiplied. Even a child can turn the
                              lever if it is long enough.

                              I also had the same problem with these valves. I tried grease and WD 40 and finally just bought a brass gate valve as I was afraid that they would break when I had to use them. I hear they do get easier with use though but I still have them on my stock shelf. Let me know how yours work out.

                              Sure,
                              From my perspective, the valves are hard to turn. The first one I received I sent back. On the second one, I learned it is the nature of the valve and it's size. After turning it a few times it does get easier as you have said. I use a small piece of pvc to help me if I need it. I do not think lubrication would help although I do not know?
                              I have found the valve to be very sturdy and durable just a little hard to turn.
                              I hope that helps.
                              Thank you.
