A ball valve is a valve that opens by turning a handle attached to a ball inside the valve. The ball has a port, or hole, through the middle so that when the port is in line with both ends of the valve, there will be flow. When closing the valve, the hole is perpendicular to the ends of the valve, blocking the flow. The handle or lever will be inline with the port position allowing you to see the valve's position.
Ball valves are durable and usually work to achieve perfect shutoff even after years of disuse. They are therefore an excellent choice for shutoff applications and can be installed on a variety of pipes. Our ProBite ® ball valves allow you to connect to Copper, CPVC, and PEX tubing in seconds without the use of messy glues or crimp tools.
