    You want to replace the ball valve? Did you look at Builders?

    Yes I do, No I havent, didnt even give them a thought, think they will have? I dont want ANY metal parts in the valve so still not sure if I should try them, their level of product knowledge scare me sometimes.

    I have found plastic ball valves a builders at their garden irrigation area. Also BuCo sells them. I think most hardware stores should sell them these days as they have replaced most steel valves anyway.

    @Newbiejb, isnt that still a ball valve? How fine are the adjustments on that? On mine(looks different) one small turn closed and the tank starts flooding, one small turn open and Ive got a gurgler.

    The only place I could find proper gate valves (as opposed to ball valves) was at ECA Marine - I've bought from them a couple of times. I'm mentioning their name as I'm not aware of any sponsors who stock these - if there are, my apologies.

    Shop

    Thanks colins. Was at builders and all I got were the usual blank stares. Will look them up.

    I pasted the URL into my message but I see that it simply says "Shop" - click on it an it should take you the ball valve page on their website.
