Need valves and fittings in Corona, CA?

A hosing system consists of more than just a hose. For example, you need valves to help you adjust the flow of water from a pipe out to the valve and eventually the hose. And then you have your fittings, which are used to connect hoses to other pieces of equipment and also help regulate the flow of liquids. To make matters even more complicated, there are multiple types of valves and fittings –– enough to make your head spin. We will cover ball valves and hydraulic fittings in this blog post for your consideration.

What are ball valves?

Ball valves, which are also known as shut-off valves, are among the most common type used to regulate flow in plumbing and gas systems, especially in newer homes. Think of them as doors to let stuff out and keep things in.

Ball valves are just one type of valves. There is also check valves, foot valves, butterfly valves…the list goes on. But just like running shoes are best for running, ball valves are best for specific purposes. We tell you more in the next paragraph.

Why should you use a ball valve?

There are many perks and benefits particular to a ball vibe. Ball valves are known for being the best in forming tight seals and serving a longer life span than other types of valves. Used for shut off and control applications, they also tend to be on the higher side of the price scale.

One of the things that sets ball valves apart is that they can open and close immediately. And while this has clear benefits, it also poses challenges. When you quickly shut off water pouring out at high pressure, for example, you risk sending shock waves to the pipes and damage them in the long run. One way to mitigate such risk is by closing the ball valve slowly when in operation.

What are hose fittings?

Also known as hose coupling, hose fittings are a type of connector you can attach at the end of your hose to either connect it to another hose or a water sprinkler.

You would think shopping for a hose fitting is pretty simple, right? It turns out there are almost as many different types of fittings as the eye can see. Some are better than others for specific purposes, and there are some that just can’t do what others can.

What is a hydraulic fitting?

A hydraulic fitting is essential in connecting conductors such as hoses and pipes in hydraulic system. A hydraulic system, in turn, is a power transmission system that uses liquids to transmit energy or signals.
