How the Xtraflow Valve Works

Types of Valves

Xtraflo Valve and float

The “Xtraflo” float valve is designed to be installed on the inside of a plastic or concrete water tank. Simply screw the Xtraflo valve into the tank inlet, adjust the float cord length and that’s it ! It comes complete with a plastic float and cord (bottom entry only).

The Xtraflo valve is a high flow valve that allows fast tank filling and eliminates the problems of damage to the valve as all pipework can be installed underground.

Xtraflo Valve and float are also available with Top Entry Arm

Ideal for retro-fitting in your existing troughs.

Acetyl Full Flow Long Tail Valve

The long tail full flow valve is designed to fasten through the wall of a trough or tank. It is supplied with a sealing washer and a back nut

  • Acetyl body.
  • DR (Dezincification Resistant) arm.
  • Sealing washer and back nut.
  • Use 150mm Float.
  • Upto 60 galons Per Minute

We can also supply Tank connectors which can be used to modify any tank to avail of Full Flow Valves.

These tank connectors are used where access or trough walls limit valve options. By using a tank connector you can use full flow valves in any tank.

They incorporate a rubber seal at both sides of the trough wall, ensuring complete water tightness.
