Control Water Supply with Plugs (PEX x Stop) Valves
The Plugs (PEX x Stop) are valves which are used for stopping out the flow of water from any PEX pipe line. They are also known as outlet valves which are used for shutting off the main supply line so that water can not be flown through them.
The main reason for using these units in any plumbing application is to control the supply of water. It also helps in distributing equal amount of water in all area by regulating its pressure and flow. Sometimes it happens that an equal amount of water is needed at all places or supply of water has to be regulated. So such units are brought in to be used. They are mostly positioned under sinks or basins, or are stubbed out of the walls. For this reason, the Plugs (PEX x Stop) valves are designed in two different shapes:
- Angled PEX valve
- Straight PEX valve
The Straight valve is used at places where the pipe lines move in a horizontal direction. This implies that movement of water is from right to left direction or vice versa. They are placed as connections in pipe. In contrast to this, the Angle PEX valves are used to regulate the flow of water from upward to downward direction. This means that water moving in a vertical direction is controlled through these plugs. These PEX Plugs (PEX x Stop) valves are obtainable in two different sizes such as 3/8” and 1/8”. Both these types can be adjusted in different sizes so that they can be used in PEX tubing of distinct sizes.
Such units are made up of highly qualitative metals such as brass and copper. Due to this reason they possess high resistance to chlorination and corrosion. It also makes the water being supplied through them superbly clean. Even scaling is not a problem in these units which further makes then suitable for even rigid plumbing applications. For such reasons, these are extensively used by homebuilders in all kinds of plumbing functionalities. These are the simplest way with which flow of water can be regulated.
So, if you also want to have full control over supply of water in your house then make use of these Plugs (PEX x Stop) valves and see the difference.
