Foot valves are the most integral part of an irrigation system that uses suction pump. Placed at the end of the pipes connected to suction pump, these foot valves stop the outward flow of water and also restricts the inflow of unwanted materials. Flap foot valve is one of the variants of foot valves that is generally located at the end of pipe connected to suction pumps.
A Flap Foot Valve uses a flap just like a Spring Foot Valve uses a spring to stop the inflow of unwanted material and outward flow of water. These foot valves are used to save water and conserve energy; remove these foot valves and you will see that suction pump stops working properly; it is these valves that hold the water and maintain pressure through which suction pumps pull the water upwards.
Uses flap instead of spring: The use of flap ensures more intake of water assisting suction pumps with greater and easier inflow. One can rely on these flap foot valve for faster suction for the needs of industries.
Designed for long lasting performance: Since it is tough to replace these valves, they are designed to last long and assist smooth suction of water. The water consists of lot of chemicals and harmful elements but since these valves are made up of PVC, they can avoid any chemical damages and provide long lasting performance.
Rigid and sturdy design: No loss of head is what these flap foot valves are known for. They have changed the way suction pumps work by providing them with the requisite pressure from below. With the lesser use of energy and lesser wastage of water, these foot valves have emerged to be the best in town.
