About Ball Valves
If you're looking for durability and a valve that controls water extremely well, the ball valve is your winner. Even if you don't use this valve for many years, it can still shut off or start flow because of its magnificent construction. Ball valves are ideal for industrial situations due to their versatility and ability to support pressures up to 1000 bar and temperatures up to 482 degrees. Additionally, making repairs or operating them is as easy as turning the knob. PVC ball valves are common among metal, other plastics, and ceramics valves while the ball is chrome-plated for extra longevity. If you're replacing some plumbing, 1/2 inch to 3/4 ball valves are most likely what you'd need. Reliable sellers on eBay have both new and gently used ball valves that meet the lead-free plumbing laws. They're easy to install and have push-fit ends for simple adjustments. That leaky faucet in your front yard won’t be an issue anymore with the simple installation of a brass, copper, or ceramic ball valve.
