Foot Valves are a form of check valve, installed at the bottom of Pump suction line, inside the wet well. Foot valves are an inexpensive way to prime a single centrifugal pump. Since Foot Valves are continually submerged in the wet well and not readily accessible for inspection or repair, it is important to select a Foot Valve of high quality long wearing construction.
These Valves are designed with perfect flat seating for better sealing. With a pressure rating of PN 0.2 these valves are widely used in suction side of pump to avoid flow reversal. Foot Valves often used in water wells, Foot Valves can be used for many systems where a liquid needs to be pumped from a lower level holding area.
