    Solar Panel Air Release Valve

    Where the heck can a guy order one of these, in Canada I can't get them local and the only ones I find on Ebay are 80 bucks after tax and shipping. I didn't see any of them on FlexPVC.com
    It's for a fafco sunsaver system I installed.

    Here is the one mine uses http://www.bestbuypoolsupply.com/solar-panel-parts.html

    Around $20. This is the company where I got my panels.

    Solar Panel Air Release Valve

    This is the one that came with my techno solis solar system. You should be able to get or order it from any plumbing supply house.

    Re: Solar Panel Air Release Valve

    FYI

    I couldn't find anything suitable locally.
    I ended up rolling the dice on an $8 PVC air release valve for motor homes, available at Home Depot plumbing dept. One week in and it's working absolutely perfect, contrast that to the $80 cost to get one online in Canada (PVC prices are ridiculous in this country).

    Even the "pool" versions available online in the US are $20 plus shipping, the part below is what I used and appears virtually identical to me, it works fine, and is a lot less money.
    Taped up the end and it went right into the Fafco header, no problems.
