An Insight Into An Automatic Ball Float Valve

Posted by Admin on March, 13, 2015

It is a device or machine used for filling water tanks like those put in flush toilets, while preventing overflow and backflow in the case where water contains low pressures. The machine consists of a valve linked to a hollow sealed float (which is mostly ball shaped) by means of a lever built close to the tank top part. The valve connects to the incoming water supply and is opened then closed with the lever containing the float on its end. When the incoming water causes the water level inside to reach a certain pre-set level together with the float, the mechanism then forces the water to close the valve. This shuts off the flow of water.

The device finds its way into the flush toilets that are used every day. When it comes to using the toilet, the toilet handle is usual turned on with a discharge mechanism activated by means of chain or rod. This mechanism can be a flapper valve made to sink relatively slower than the water that will leave out of the toilet bowl below making the tank empty.

When the level of water reduces, the float descends and actuates the fill valve. Then water is fedto the tank to return normal levels while a smaller flow directed to the overflow tube to fill the bowl again. As the flapper valve closes, the water flowing continues from the fill valve until the tank level reaches the fill line again.

There are many companies that supply customers these devices in the market. While many customers long to have fun while using the toilets, it’s important to look for devices with good features;

  • Durability. While looking for this device in the market, consider how long it will offer you that important service without causing problems. When the product becomes long lasting one, it’s worth the price to pay. The valves are usual made from good materials to ensure they do not corrode or degrade due to being in contact with the liquids constantly.
  • Quality. It’s difficult to determine a quality one, but upon usage, you’ll be able to know the effectiveness and efficiency.
  • Affordable. Make sure that you go for the most affordable ball float valves. Many companies sell these products at nominal prices.


May you make the best choices after checking the best features from valves, float and levers in the devices you want to purchase!
