Say Goodbye to Leaks: Av-Tek's SDX Check Valve

Often, Globe Style check valve buyers are unaware that the valve is metal-seated, which can leak up to 1 oz of water per inch of diameter per hour according to AWWA standards. This leakage can pose problems during pressure testing, creating a headache for contractors. 


Until the release of Av-Tek's SDX Check Valve, the workaround was to machine groove and hand-press an O-Ring into the seat — a temporary fix that’s prone to failure.


Av-Tek's SDX Check Valve solves this problem! It uses the same design as our DEX Valve to ensure a leak-free experience.
