    Anyone know why the difference in the flow handle and bleeder between the 2" and 3" versions of this valve? First picture shows 2" and below (one flow handle and bleeder is a screw set into the handle) and second picture shows the 3" valve (different flow handle and knobbed screw). To make things even more confusing we got a 2" valve configured like a 3" valve two days ago.

    What are the date codes on the valves?

    I never looked Boots. I still have one of them at the office that I can look at. I'm going to return it because it kept weeping. Put the newer one in (looks like the 3" in the picture) and weep stopped immediately.

    On a different note, the weep may not be the valve. I've had a couple valves from this supplier that were returns (one had rocks in it) from someone else. The weeping valve may have been in the same category and may not be a manufacturer's defect or anything else.
