Weathermatic 12000 Series Valve
This is Weathermatic's "economy" plastic valve line. The valve is only available in 1" size, but is available in 2 configurations one with threaded ends, and one with glued ends. A glued end valve is glued directly to the pipe, which makes it difficult to remove for repairs. Think of the glue-on model as a "throw away" valve if it breaks. Two sister valves do not have flow controls so I do not recommend them. The part numbers for the valves without flow controls are the same except they do not contain the letter "F". Other than that they are identical to the 12000 series.
- Plastic body, either PVC or "Engineering Grade Plastic"
- A flow control stem ("F" models only).
- Molded shock cone to reduce water hammer.
- Normally closed.
- Stainless steel spring.
- Reverse flow porting to reduce diaphragm stretching.
- 125 PSI rating.
