Hard To Use
Extremely stiff, very difficult to open and close. I bought two of these, and one of the handles broke off in three pieces.

Matt,
I am so sorry to hear the handle broke on one of your ball valves. They are covered by a 90 day Factory Warranty from the folks at MTM Hydro. Please give me a call at 800-710-7499 and I'll be happy to reach out to MTM Hydro for you.

For best results please make sure the valves are all the way open or all the way closed during use; otherwise they will fail prematurely.

Some of our customers have had success using a shot of WD40 to make the valve move more easily.

Marcus,
The folks at MTM Hydro advise making sure the valves are used all the way open, or all the way closed to get the longest life from them.

Some of our customers have had success using a shot of WD40 to make the valve move more easily.

I searched our database by both your email address and your name & town and I don't see where you purchased the valves from us. I'm sorry, but we can only handle Warranty claims from our customers- you may want to contact the place where you bought the valves to see if they're still covered, or email us at 'service@pressurewashersdirect.com' if they were bought under another name.

Steel Ball Value
Needed something that would hold up to 4000 psi day in to day out. This steel ball value is a little hard to turn on and off but it will cut off and do it's job.

Essential For Swapping Components
Eliminates the need to power down the washer and the water while swapping between wands and scrubbers.

Saves time and thereby makes you more money.

Disappointed
I have been using this ball valve for 3 years. It is a great item to have when changing from different accessories without having to shut the machine down.

This is the 4th one I have purchased. All of the failures have been due to the handle breaking at the base where it connects to the valve. I have come to expect this to happen at this point.

I'm disappointed that no one from PED took the time to read my request for an additional handle to be shipped with the new valve at an additional... more

James,
We have 3 orders listed under your email address- 7/3/2014, 9/12/2014, and 11/30/2015; all for this same ball valve. Our records show on 9/12/2014 MTM Hydro sent you 2 extra handles along with your order because you had called us and told us about the issue you were having, and we asked MTM Hydro to help out.

I'm sorry we didn't pick up the comment you added to your 11/30/2015 order asking us to add handles to your invoice. We don't carry them, so you are right- we should have emailed you and let you know we weren't able to send them. The way the 9/12 request posted to your file made it look as though we had already answered you.

The warranty period on this valve is only 90 days, and as a Factory Warranty it only covers defect in materials and workmanship. The warranty does not cover wear and tear, nor does it cover use and abuse.

If you would like to file a warranty claim on your most recent purchase, please call the folks at MTM Hydro toll-free at 866-686-4020 within the warranty period. It will be up to them to decide if your repeated claims fall under their warranty. They may ask you to send the flawed handle(s) in to prove there is a defect in their casting process, since yours are the only reports we've had of repeated handle failure.

Heavy Duty
Thought it was expensive until I received it... It's major heavy duty. Only down side is it's heavy.

It's a must when changing over from wand to surface cleaner.

Steel Ball Valve
Bought and used for 4 months, started to leak and wouldn't shut completely. It was never used with chemicals only water. I wouldn't buy again as it was expensive.
Cons: Unreliable, Expensive

Andrew,
I'm sorry to hear you didn't get the durability you were expecting from this ball valve. The folks at MTM Hydro say that it's important to make sure the valve is all the way open or all the way closed- running it partly open will shorten the life considerable.

I see from your file that you have a hot water pressure washer. Please be aware that this ball valve is only rated for use with water up to 176�F. Use at temperatures over that can result in premature failure. We look for the best values and have found that other brands of hydraulic ball valves rated for 4200 PSI retail for 20% to 50% more than this one.
