This is what happnes to Home Depot Ball Valves

This is what happnes to Home Depot Ball Valves

As I said above NEVER use yellow brass or non-UL marine rated valves. The ball in this valve, that keeps water out of the boat, was completely gone, not there, totally missing, corroded away and never to be seen again in a little less than a years time!


Again, please DO NOT use home center or plumbing supply house brand valves & use only Marine UL rated valves & seacocks.
