Suction Foot Valves

Suction Foot Valves



These Foot Valves are used on the suction ends of water hoses to keep the pump primed. The foot valve only allows the fluid to flow in one direction towards the pump and stops the water from draining back into the tank under the force of gravity. They come complete with a strainer built in, which prevents debris from entering the suction hose and therefore keeping your pump safe. Replacement parts are available which include: the Strainer, Neoprene Flapper with Weight, the Neoprene Flapper and the Steel Plate.
