Installed these at a community pool where they will be exposed to hot temps in summer and very cold winters as the room is a shuttered snack bar. These seem more substantial and durable than the standard ball valves that are offered. Haven't seen any leak in the two years I've been using them. The small valve handles can get a little stiff in hard water situations if not turned on/off frequently.

I got these in both 1/2" and 3/4". The 1/2" is fine. The 3/4 looks like they punched / cut the brass roughly but didn't bore/ream it out after that. The result looks like it will cause restriction / reduced flow (the hole looks only slightly bigger than the 1/2" "large bore". PexSupply called Uponor who says this is correct - i can't imagine how? I'm not expected full port, but this just looks wrong. I'm using these to feed recirc line and high flow valves on roman tub and multi head shower. Think i'll use normal 3/4" sweat valve with the propex adapters in stead and return

Decent

By chemplumb

Verified Reviewer

Comments about 3/4" ProPEX Brass Ball Valve (Large Bore):

Used these with aquapex tubing for 3/4" water lines feeding the emergency eyewash stations at the chemical plant where I work. I love the streamlined aspect, both pleasing to the eye, conducive to minimized snagging and more facile turning during on-site installation. Although some reviewers disparage the handle for its minimal size/leverage, I've not had any difficulty w/ them. They are somewhat tighter but still easy to use. Thus, I might have even given them a higher rating, except that I had once received one defective (did not fully seal).

large bore is not full bore

By Mike

from Niskayuna, NY

Verified Reviewer

Comments about 3/4" ProPEX Brass Ball Valve (Large Bore):

I bought these for hydronic heating. I agree that a larger handle would be better but the head los has to be greater than full bore for these. I am gioing to return these and use sweat ball valves with ProPex fittings since I am feeding a monoflow tee.

Handle too short

By Albany Landlord

from Albany NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1/2" ProPEX Brass Ball Valve (Large Bore):

This is obviously effective for those using propoex fittings and high quality, and the full bore allows plenty of flow. I have found however, that the short handle doesn't provide enough leverage and once things start to stick I need pliers or something to open and close it.

  • 1/2" ProPEX Brass Ball Valve (Large Bore)

    Q:

    Why can't these valves be used with Glycol systems? What is an alternative that can be used with Glycol systems?
    Asked on 11/16/2011 by Anonymous

    2 answers

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Uponor does not make any ProPEX ball valves that are compatible with glycol. We are not sure why they do not recommend the valves with glycol, but it may have something to do with the gasket material. Our only suggestion would be to use a standard threaded ball valve with ProPEX adapters.

      Answered on 11/16/2011 by PexSupply Staff from NY
    • A:

      I called uponor today and asked this question. They told me that it is due to the material used to seat the ball valve. They said it would leak! I was told they made one but stopped due to low demand. I feel it's because they want you to buy a more expensive manifold!
