BALL VALVE INSTALLATION
All of our trucks and trailers now have a ball valve installation that we recommend. It is a three way valve that allows us to make a switch. We can switch from the tank fill to a garden hose quickly and easily. Some of examples for using this include filling a bucket, or the need for a high wash station. If we need light pressure for anything like rinsing off the truck or anything else, it’s much easier than using a drain hose.
HOW BALL VALVE INSTALLATION WORKS
Water arrives to our rigs through the garden hose reel. It then flows directly into the ball valve. It can easily switch from filling the tank to a rig mounted garden hose. With several different nozzles, you are able to use it in different ways. For example, we have a fireman’s nozzle that can be purchased from Home Depot or Lowe’s. This nozzle provides a wide range or garden hose pressure from a pretty long, straight stream to nothing more than a trickle if needed. It’s ideal for filling a soap bucket without creating a lot of splashing suds. In addition, we have a second nozzle that provides stronger pressure and a longer stream. It’s the same nozzle that we use for just rinsing houses using a dedicated pump.
In this video, we also provide a quick view of the entire trailer. I have been testing a booster pump, but eventually concluded it’s not really worth using. I was not impressed at all! So if you have any questions about this ball valve installation, just shoot me an email and I’ll answer as quickly as I’m able. Be sure and subscribe to our YOUTUBE CHANNEL for more helpful videos.
