Ensure that well pump water flows in only one direction while also protecting equipment from small solids entering the system with these foot valves. A type of backflow-prevention check valve, foot valves include a strainer, which helps to keep small particulates from entering your system and prevents the valves from jamming open. They have a larger flow area than most check valves, allowing the maximum amount of flow through your system.
Commonly used with reservoirs and tanks, these check valves stop particles from entering your line while preventing backflow and loss of prime. They are often used with centrifugal pumps to help maintain clean, continuous liquid flow, which is important for priming the pump.

Drinking Water Certified
Use these foot valves in well installations for drinking water supply. These low-lead valves have been certified for use with potable (drinking) water.
Low Lead Brass Body
Check Valve Convertible
Convert these spring foot valves to standard check valves by removing the strainer and the spring. The strainer keeps debris from entering the valve while pumping, and the spring closes the valve when pumping stops.
