I'm wanting to order a Spears Gate Valve, but I'm unsure which size to get.

My overflow is 1" pipe - will this go into a 1" slip Spears Gate Valve?

If not, what do I need to do/buy to make it fit.


Thanks.

The 1" slip valve will fit on 1" rigid PVC pipe and should be glued using PVC cement.

A gate valve is an expensive piece of pvc that usually has to be ordered. I always put unions before expensive gate valves. Unions are good to add incase of future changes, maintenance, ect. You might want to add a 1 union before the gate valve just in case.

Thanks guys. I will add the union in.

What do you think of this gate valve - it's a great price with free shipping:

I've used both the Sch 40 (white) and Sch 80 (grey) from king brothers with no problems so far, only have 6 of them, work just as well as the more expensive spears valves

I currently have 6 of the Sch 40 on order of various sizes for a manifold project I'm doing

Thanks mate. That's all I need to know. At half the price, I'm ordering it.

Mork,

How quickly do you need one?

You can buy a Spears 1" gate valve (threadxthread) locally from Corix for just under just $20.

Check out this thread - http://www.canreef.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=102536

Sure beats having to wait weeks.

Good luck!

Great idea! It's a Spears gate valve. Same ones being sold at LFS.
