  2. Scrubber valve is for dirty water applications...
    I have used both the PEB & PEBS. The Rain Bird PEB is my choice for larger commercial valves. The 1 1/2" and 2" use the same diaphragm.

    Hello London, How are you guy?

    Correct off this particular job with my new gig I came across them. Up north we always used the Hunter valves for big pipe. We are drawing off a vertical Berkley pump from a lake with much HEAD. the grade seems to me like a 45' but i m sure its less than that..The pump is on a dock with 1 1/2 intake and pushes up quite a hill.

    What would you use for a well application?

    Have you ever had any problems with this valve?
    How is servicing such an animal?
     
  4. I would say that a regular PEB would work just fine from a well. A pond would require a scrubber IMO.
    Never had a problem with a PEB and service is easy on the valve - six nuts on threaded studs...
    I use a 1" PEB as my master valves on residential systems....

    thanks.

    Whats the best way to measure 90's / 45's ?
     
  8. Some gluing PVC tips...
    Prime both the pipe and fitting and dont let the primer dry....
    Glue both the pipe and fitting...
    1/4 turn and hold fitting and pipe in place....
    Wipe off the excess glue from around the joint...
    This is the technique I use and my new installations come with a 10 year piping warranty...

    Whats the purpose here?
     
  10. Since the primer is what actually softens and prepares the surface of the pipe and fittings so they can be fused together with cement. As long as the primer is still fluid then it is still softening the pipe. Once the primer dries is is no longer softening the pipe.
