Apex Valves – The Big Boy

110.00

This extremely high volume diaphragm activated valve gives you greater control of the water levels in your water tank or reservoir! With two weights, the BigBoy allows variable adjustment between minimum and maximum water levels saving your electricity by reducing pump run time.  The valve will have no water hammer, requires no power and has less parts which means there will be less problems!  The BigBoy® will be closed when both weights are submerged (maximum water level), and will remain closed until the bottom weight is exposed (minimum water level).  The valve will then open and remain open until the maximum water level is reached.
