Multiple applications within ballast systems make this a popular item for controlling the flow of water.
If you're looking for a way to control flow within your ballast system this item, along with optional threaded hose barb adapters, is an affordable and convenient option. Shut off the flow of water on a remote fill hose, or use to valves together to route water from one pump to multiple locations. There are many applications for this quarter turn ball valve.
This part is designed to fit in spaces that are too small for other ball valves making it ideal for applications where space and weight are considerations. There's also no danger of leakage through the assembled parts and the valve doesn't require any adjustment because the internal components are sealed inside the ball valve body.
Rated for 150 PSI @ 70°F, so there are no issues when using higher pressure reversible pumps. Features high quality EPDM O-rings for a 100% seal when in the closed position.
WARNING! This ball valve is not rated for use below the waterline. For connection to your thru-hull intake you need to use a bronze ball valve that is sufficiently rated for below waterline applications.
