Even if a marine sanitation diverter valve is installed in an easy-to-access location, replacing one isn't a job that most people want to do with any regularity. Available in the US exclusively from Raritan Engineering, Tru-Design's new Aquavalve® is engineered and manufactured for long-lasting durability and reliability in tough marine applications.
Plastic diverter valves become brittle and crack over time. Bronze lasts, but is prone to sticking. Tru-Design's Aquavalve is made from a fiberglass-reinforced nylon composite with stainless steel fasteners that are safe for use with most toilet chemicals. Stiff and light, it has silicone seals for silky smooth movement, wear resistance and superior sealing. The valve has a broad operating range from –40° to 230° F, and is pressure tested to ensure quality and safety.
Available in black or white, the Tru-Design Aquavalve is clearly marked for overboard discharge or diversion into the holding tank. The handle can be locked when in a No-Discharge Zone and the fascia reversed if not using with a toilet.
With two seal options and straight, 90° and 120° tails with 1.5" hose barbs, plumbing in confined spaces is easy. The valve measures 4.5" W x 4.4" H x 4" D with a handle that extends 4.25" from the center. Tru-Design's Aquavalve starts at $88 and includes a wrench.
