Schedule 40 PVC construction for strength and resistance to corrosion and mild chemicals
Replaceable easy grip handle
Maximum operating pressure rating of 150 psi
Inline valve for connecting two pipes going in the same direction
2" female NPT connections
This Valterra 700-20F ball valve is made of white schedule 40 PVC (polyvinyl chloride) for strength and resistance to corrosion and mild chemicals, and is suitable for use as an inline valve for connecting two pipes going in the same direction. It has a replaceable easy grip handle, a maximum operating pressure of 150 pounds per square inch (psi), and two 2" female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threaded connections. This ball valve is suitable for residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural use in a wide range of applications.
Ball valves use a spherical disc to control the flow between pipes, tubes, or hoses. Flow is allowed when the hole that pierces the ball-shaped disc is in line with the inlet and outlet of the valve and is blocked when the ball is horizontally swiveled 90 degrees, so that the hole of the ball is perpendicular to the opening of the valve. Ball valves can be referred to as full port or reduced port (also known as regular or standard port) depending on the inner diameter or the valve. A ball valve is full port if the hole of the ball is the same size as the inner diameter of the connecting pipeline (resulting in lower friction) and termed reduced port if the hole of the valve is one pipe size smaller than the pipe, resulting in less flow through the valve than through the shaft of the pipe. Ball valves may have a handle or lever that aligns with the ball’s position (open or closed) for manual operation. They are primarily used in air, gas, liquid, and steam applications.

I needed this item within 3 days for a farm project. But lowes and home depot didn't have it. Tractor supply had a ball valve, but wasn't the style I needed. I was able to get this in 2 days with prime. Works great for my needed application.
They're a #$)*# to turn, but use them for grouting where they're open for a few hours and then closed for eternity. Way cheaper as disposables than metal valves.
Good Valve and Good value. Valve may be a little stiff but compared to others of this size it is very operable.
