Have you ever damaged your diaphragm pump by having the suction line blocked through a clogged filter, a collapsed hose, or a closed valve? This valve will help prevent unnecessary damage. This Pump Saver Valve can not only stop damage to your pump but save your spraying day.
This valve mounts between the inlet fitting on the pump and the filter or ball valve on the intake line. Install it on the suction line before your pump.
It is designed to relieve excess intake vacuum due to a closed ball valve or plugged filter, preventing damage and failure of the diaphragms.
This valve has a brass body, stainless steel spring, polypropylene piston and Viton o-ring.
- Solid brass body, stainless steel spring
- Polypropylene piston and Viton O-ring
- 3/4" (19 mm) male NPT pipe thread
- Vacuum is preset to 8-10" (203-254 mm) VAC
- Adjustment range is 1-12" (25-305 mm) VAC
If you plan to use this Pump Saver Valve on a diaphragm pump that has 1" (25 mm) suction, buy it complete with a brass tee and 1" (25 mm) brass hose barbs. The Hypro D30 and D403 have 1" (25 mm) suctions.
