    Ball Valves

    I needed to replace a union ball valve today. Boy... the Praher valves are so much better than Hayward.

    Don't know them, but then again, I sure don't know all the Pool specific brands, that's for sure. Is that what they are? I always hear about Jandy being the top notch, Cadillac of valves.

    I think he is taking about actual ball valves not the pool valves that Jandy, Pentair, Hayward, etc all make very similar.

    Those see likely better than the regular ball valves, but the Neverlube type valves are even better with lifetime warranty and rebuildable.
