              Comments about 3/4" (FIP x Male Union) Hot Water Angle Radiator Valve:

              Hard to find valve saved the day but it was not that easy to install. I found a one piece reducer, 1-1/2" x 3/4", that was just 3/16 shorter than the 2 part original and that was the ticket. It gave me room to install the new valve. This valve will be used to control water flow or as a temp control device. A little different than the original because this one will actually shut the supply down completely. So be aware when adjusting.....

                    Comments about 1"" (FIP x Male Union) Hot Water Angle Radiator Valve:

                    The only issue with the valve is that you must tighten the stem packing nut prior to pressurizing the system...it WILL leak as it is not shipped with it tightened. Other than that, works as advertised, smooth turning, throttles flow, and has a bleed hole drilled thru the seat to allow air bleeding with the valve closed.

                                      Restoring a 100 year old home, which includes sandblasting the cast iron radiators. Ordered new valves and exit fittings from Pexsuppy, and couldn't be happier with the products and shipping. I have ordered from this company before. Great service and products at very good prices.

                                            The design of the union, particularly the minimal space between the union nut and the thread on the union that goes into the radiator, makes this valve difficult to install. I had to use the smallest slip jaw plyers I could find to tighten the nipple into the radiator, on older valves, this distance was more carefully considered. On this valve, if the distace from where the nut seats on the union nipple to the first pipe thread on the nipple was another 1/4", installation would have been so much easier!
                                            Otherwise, quality and functionality was good.

                                                  Perfect fit on my radiators, once I got the old ones off. Well made. No leaks whatsoever on 7 radiators throughout the winter. Problem free. Nice low profile of the valve stem.

                                                    Q:

                                                    Does this valve fully shut-off flow when closed or does it have a by-pass? By-passes are typical on many hot water radiator valves.

                                                      As per the manufacturer spec sheet, there is a hole drilled in the valve seat for hot water use.

                                                      Most hot water valves DO have a bypass hole somewhere (this prevented radiators and pipes from freezing when a room's heat was shut off). According to the diagram, this valve also has a small hole drilled between sides 'for hot water use'. It is about the diameter of a paper clip.

                                                      No, there is no bypass - it can shut off completely. This controls how
                                                      much water goes into the hot water radiator. In my house, the main
                                                      circulating pipe (one-pipe system) goes under the room and comes up to each
                                                      radiator, where this valve is. If this valve is off, the "bypass" is
                                                      through the main pipe.

                                                      Before I installed it on my radiator, I believe I looked down into it, and it closed completely when turned into the " off " position. For my application, it actually serves as a redundant valve, because I have a PEX manifold that has an individual shutoff valve for this branch. So the brass valve is almost for show only! I did find that I needed a very small and narrow-jawed adjustable wrench to apply a back hold on the smooth brass you see on the horizontal pipe in the picture.

                                                      You use a radiator nipple (spud) wrench. You are NOT supposed to use pliers or a pipe wrench on the nipple itself...the nipple is splined on the inside to catch the mating splines of the spud wrench. Then you apply a crescent wrench to the square head of the spud wrench. Easy. Plenty of torque, and won't make ugly gouge marks in the soft metal of the nipple. Even the 100 year old nipples on my radiators have these splines...this is nothing new. The spud wrench is available on this same page.

                                                      You do not need a special tool to tighten the union on this radiator valve. A standard wrench would work perfectly fine.

                                                      A .875" maximum opening slip jaw plyers worked for me, barely. They were narrow enough to clear between union nut and bushings on the radiator. I reviewed this product and gave it a low mark for design, it's as if those who designed and built it never had to turn a wrench and actually install one! How typical!
