Manual Aquavalve (Y Valve)
The TruDesign Aquavalve (Y valve) is designed and made in New Zealand
Legislation in many countries dictates the use of holding tanks near shore, or in defined areas. By installing a diverting valve (Y Valve), the user has the choice to divert black water to a holding tank or directly overboard when circumstances allow.
- Manufactured from a glass reinforced nylon composite - High strength and light weight.
- Stainless steel fasteners - Will not corrode in salt laden air.
- Easy installation - With a range of straight, 90° and 120° tails, and two seal options, plumbing in confined spaces is made easy.
- Handle position lockable - Legislation in some regions require the overboard discharge handle to be locked into the holding tank position when in ‘no discharge’ zones
- Available in black or white - Fits in with colour schemes in plumbing areas allowing easy identification of components.
- Pressure tested - All valves are pressure tested to ensure quality and safety in respect to sealing and operation.
