Gate valve is perfect fit for use in central vacuum system in workshop! Yeah, they may cost twice as much as any aluminum blast gate you can buy for rockler or woodcraft buy they hook the 3 inch pvc line without adapters or tape. Plus 4 inch flex hose fits over the outside diameter snug and needs only one clamp to make a secure connection. No whistling, no silicone bead needed, nothing. My system runs a 2HP Jet canister through a SDD, 6 inch mainline, 4 inch branches reduced to 3 inch for the gate valves and then to 4 inch hose or 2.5 inch hose at four stations. You will not be disappointed using these as blast gates.
I replaced the original valve because the plastic handle broke. This one is more expensive, but closing and opening the valve is so much smoother, the extra cost is really worth it. I wish I had this from the beginning.
I am giving 4 stars only because I can't attest to the valves performance when used with liquids. I used these as part of a ventilation system, and they work great for air.
