True Union Swing Check Valve - FPT x FPT Information



Part #: S1720C07F

When you own an aquarium, you probably feel like a plumber. How? Because a modern aquarium has many differing pieces of equipment that works harmoniously together for the whole system to remain healthy and in optimal shape. The most important equipment is the pump which moves oxygenated water around making sure your fish and plant life is healthy. The next piece of important equipment is the aerator that pumps in oxygen thru your aquarium.

The larger your aquarium is, the more oxygen you need pumped in or aeration done. The third piece of equipment is the filter. The filter pumps water thru a membrane that has activated carbon or some sort of filtration media. It needs to do this to make sure that dissolved threats to your fishes' health - like ammonia and other harmful toxins - are taken out of the water. So there is this coordination between these three important pieces of equipment to keep your aquarium healthy. Since there is a lot of tubing involved, you would need a check valve. A great check valve that is ¾ x3/4 inch is the True Union Swing Check Valve - 3/4 Inch FPT X 3/4 Inch FPT from Pet Store. This valve is very sturdy and doesn't crack easily.

It can accommodate the pressure of your many differing systems. If you need a reliable tube element, the True Union Swing Check Valve - 3/4 Inch FPT X 3/4 Inch FPT is great for this purpose. Try to map out all your tubes so it looks good, manageable, convenient and accessible. Some aquarium owners just let the tubes run wild and it can get really confusing. Through True Union Swing Check Valve - 3/4 Inch FPT X 3/4 Inch FPT at the right junctures, make this network of tubes easier to organize.

Worked great! Product Review by CHRIS MARTIN (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

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.

Great!

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.

Excellent Check Valve Product Review by RICHARD OLSON (Posted on 2/12/14)

Excellent!

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.

Excellent!

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.
