More About Valves

Blackhawk Supply works with manufacturers like Griswold Controls, Midland Metal MFG, and Siemens to offer you the valves you need for your next job.
How do valves work?
Ball valves offer long-lasting performance. These spherical valves come in brass, stainless steel and chrome-plated brass materials.
They control the flow of water with the turn of a lever. This is why plumbers use the ball valve for shut off and control applications.
The ball valve has two small downsides. First, they do not offer detail control of a throttling application. Second, they can crack in extreme cold. This is why you want other options like the check valves.
Check valves allow water to flow in a single direction while preventing reverse water flow at the same time. These valves are self-automated, so you do not need help opening and closing them. Sump pumps often use check valves to direct the flow of water away from the home.
If you need the single directional flow of a check valve and the secure open and shut capabilities of a ball valve, you can also get a ball check valve. Ball check valves move fluids in the intended direction. They combine the best features of both to provide a superior product.
