- Slip ends for 1" PVC pipe
- Gate Valves offer much greater control than a ball valve. Ball valves are hard to turn in small increments, and get harder to use as buildup forms inside the valve (especially true with salt water aquariums).
- Gate Valves can be easily dialed down to the exact amount of water needed to pass through, which is perfect for controlling how fast an aquarium or Algae Scrubber Box drains water. Leaving just a little water above the top of a drain will prevent the noisy 'sucking' drain sound.
