True Union Swing Check Valve - 1 inch FPT x 1 inch FPT Information




With the True Union Swing Check Valve from Pet Store, it is now possible for you to clean your pond's or aquarium's water thoroughly and without fear that it will break from the heavy water pressure. It has an exact measurement of an inch in FPT on both sides, making this item very small. However, you will be surprised by its durability and ability to last long.

The True Union Swing Check Valve is meant to be installed on one end of your powerhead. Contrary to what most people might think, this product can be used on all types, brands, and models of powerheads. It can also be used to pump water inside an aquarium, a fountain, or a pond.

The True Union Swing Check Valve does not need heavy duty tools to be setup, with the exception of your ordinary pliers. It is designed for long-lasting water pumping, and it works well with most types of skimmers and filters that you use. With its small size, you will be amazed with its cost-efficiency, as well as its performance.

Replace your current regulator with the True Union Swing Check Valve today, and sit back and enjoy the noticeable and immediate results that it will bring to your pets' home.

Excellent Check Valve

Comments: This is the valve to buy for reef plumbing supplies. I recently built a 180 mixed reef. My intention was to improve upon all the rookie mistakes in my 75 gallon reef which I had for 2 years. I used the 75 gallon for the sump and built in 4 compartments. I have a custom overflow with 2 2-inch drains and 2- 1 inch returns powered by a mag 9.5. I am using a 1 inch wye insert connect which I could only find at Marine Depot. South of the wye I installed a 1-1/2 inch true union Spears check valve. It is a vital component of the system to prevent backflow when the pump is turned off. This is a beautifully made valve and functions flawlessly. It is rated at 150 psi back pressure so is built to last. It does not impede return flow which is important. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Comments: I change this check valve every 4 years. The union lets me do it without messing with the connections. Never have had a problem in a power failure and have had this little valve save me it seems at least once a year.

Comments: This valve makes maintenance very easy w/o mess. The biggest benefit for me is that it is so much quieter than valves available at Lowes or Home Depot.

Leaks!

Comments: I hooked this up to my return pump and it leaked from every possible seal. They were not big leaks but a very slow continuos leak. When I tried to remove it, the screw got stuck onto my ball valve so I had to take off the ball valve too! Horrible product. It looks really cool on and maybe it works well on the overflow to sump where there is not strong water pressure. Hopefully I can remove the seal from my ball valve so I can return it...

Comments: One of the best purchases I have made for my new tank. I orginialy set my new tank up without one of these, once I found this True Union Swing Check Valve - 1 inch FPT x 1 inch FPT I re-did my return plumbing to add this in. It does not restrict the flow from the pump and works perfectly.

Comments: I've found that this valve works great for about a year then it wont close properly. I think part of the problem is that the rubber gets hard and won't seal properly. I don't think this is a problem since it is easy to replace with the union fittings. Just think of it as insurance you have to renew every year not a one time cost. Jason
