About Swing Check Valves
Swing check valve in a one-way valve, which prevents the backflow of water by means of a metallic disc suspended on a hinge or a shaft inside the valve and positioned directly against the flow opening. When water moves in the “open” direction, indicated by the arrow on the check valve body, it swings the disc on the hinge and passes with very little restriction. When flow ceases, the disc returns to its normally “closed” position. In the event of backflow, the water pushes on the disc in a reverse direction, thus keeping it in a closed position.
Due to the nature of the mechanism inside the swing check valve, it can only be installed in positions which ensure that the valve remains normally closed. These include vertical (with flow arrow pointing upwards) and horizontal, in level with the ground (with protruding portion of the valve on top).

Why don't we show the price?
While PexUniverse.com reserves the legal right set its own product pricing, some
manufacturers require internet retailers to display a price at or above
manufacturer's established MAP ("Minimum Advertised Price").
Since our price for this product is lower then MAP, the manufacturer does not allow
us to display our lowest price until you place the product in the shopping cart.
This allows us to continue offering our lowest prices while staying consistent with
product manufacturer's policy.
This process does not require you to purchase the product - it can be easily
removed from shopping cart if needed.
We understand that this is an inconvenience and are continually working with
manufacturers to educate them on how MAP affects our customers.
