Comments: Product works like it should. Install was easy, make sure you set the height correct before drilling your hole as others have stated in their reviews. I took off half a star because I needed to use plumbers tape to seal the threads which I wasn't expecting, other than that great product and easy to do.

Failed after 1 year

Comments: This valve worked great for about one year on a 55G drum that my RODI unit feeds. The source water from the city varies from 30-50 PSI and goes into my RODI unit. The RODI output water feeds this valve in a 55G drum. It’s a pretty typical setup really. I’m really glad I keep my drum on a concrete floor near a floor drain because this valve failed miserably and the drum overflowed all over the floor for 12 hours or more before I caught it. I was really disappointed because the only other thing in the drum is a heater in the bottom to keep the water at temperature. I haven’t pulled the float out yet to see what happened but it appears the float itself lost buoyancy or filled with water and just hung straight down and never came up. There is nothing stopping the arm from moving. This is pretty disappointing because the drum sat with a garbage can lid on it for a year and is on totally level ground on cinder blocks. It wasn’t like it was being disturbed or anything. I need a replacement, but I’m not sure if I’ll go with the same one.

Comments: I'm not usually a Kent brand fan but these are well built float valves. I've had one running in my sump for about 3 years now on my auto top off with zero problems. I've got a sensor with a shut off switch above it should it fail but it hasn't yet.

Comments: I am using the valve in the environmental testing field. I really like the ease of adjustment for the level and that I do not need a reducing valve for the pressure. Great product.
