Backflow Prevention: Hayward Y-Check Valves prevent reversal of flow in piping systems. They are ideal where backflow could potentially cause damage to pumps, filters or process equipment.
Reliable Operation: The valve operates without the need for any adjustments or settings. A plastic coil (not a spring) supports the disc inside the valve body. When the inlet flow stops, backpressure (a minimum of 2 PSI is required) moves the disc with its elastomer o-ring onto a plastic seat, shutting off the flow. The plastic coil reliably guides the disc onto the seat. If your application requires a spring loaded check valve click here.
Easy Maintenance: Hayward Y-Check Valves are easily serviced without disconnection from the piping system. Just remove the heavy duty hex cap for quick access to the internal valve components.
