What Is A Ball Valve?

A ball valve is a type of quarter-turn valve that uses a spherical ball to control the flow of a fluid. The ball is rotatably mounted inside the valve body and has a hole drilled through its axis. When the valve is open, the hole is aligned with the flow path allowing fluid to pass through. When the valve is closed, the ball rotates to a position where the hole is perpendicular to the flow path, blocking fluid flow. Ball valves are commonly used for their durability, reliability, and ability to provide a tight shutoff.

How Do You Install A Water Tank Ball Valve?

Installing a water tank ball valve can be done by following these steps:

  1. Turn off the water supply: Before starting the installation process, make sure to turn off the water supply to avoid any water leakage.

  2. Drain the tank: Empty the water tank by connecting a hose to the drain valve and letting the water flow out.

  3. Remove the old valve: Unscrew the old valve using a wrench and remove it from the tank.

  4. Clean the threads: Use a wire brush or sandpaper to clean the threads on the tank where the new valve will be installed.

  5. Insert the valve: Insert the new valve into the tank and tighten it using a wrench.

  6. Turn on the water supply: Turn on the water supply and check for any leaks around the valve.

  7. Test the valve: Finally, test the valve by turning it on and off to ensure it is functioning properly.

How Long Do Ball Valves Last?

In general, high-quality ball valves made with corrosion-resistant materials and proper installation can last for many years, often over 20 years or more. However, in some harsh or demanding applications, ball valves may need to be replaced more frequently, possibly within just a few years. Regular maintenance and inspection can help extend the lifespan of ball valves.
