Works so far so it has already surpassed the other crummy types of valves. A long time ago they made these types of fittings to last. Not anymore- you now have to really seek out the parts that work like this one does.
Received part of my order and part of it was wrong and still waiting on the right parts and another order been waiting a month for and still haven't received it even though it says it has been shipped. Very slow on gettin my orders.
Great ball valve that lasts, I have never had to replace one of these valves and will not use anything else. The valves that I used to pick up at my local supplier would last 3-4 months tops but these valves have never been replaced. Every 6 months when I replace my lead solution hose this is the valve that gets put on.
These really are one of the best valves. I would have given it 5 stars but sometimes they leak from the knob. I have had some that last a couple years and some that last a couple jobs.
