Which one do you use? Why?
I think this is what you were referring to Dunbar. PCP weighed in on the issue.Glad I'm not on trial for murder and this forum is my jury. I'd be in prison the rest of my life while waiting for the verdict.
And I did not know Nibco's were bronze. They do look sort of brown now that you mentioned it. You are very knowledgeable.
This means we have been lying to our customers for many years.

Gate valves, globe valves or ball valves for residential potable water is the thread title.....
Is it an isolation valve for a water heater, Yes or an outside faucet YES, or riser valves to shut down 25 floors NO, perhaps a valve that feeds a piece of machinery NO?
There are many applications that need valves in a potable water system, but perhaps my question was not on topic.
For water heaters in single family homes I liked using Butterball butterfly valves from Milwaukee, they didn't suffer from the stiffening that occurs in the teflon seats of most ball valves due to the hot water expansion.Is it an isolation valve for a water heater, YES or an outside faucet YES, or riser valves to shut down 25 floors NO, perhaps a valve that feeds a piece of machinery NO?
