Foot Check valve

A foot valve is a check valve, which is mounted at the bottom of a suction line. If the pump is switched off, the foot valve prevents the emptying of the suction line. This keeps the pump primed and ready for use.  In addition, a foot valve is usually equipped with a filter, in order to prevent contaminants from reaching the pump or the foot valve itself. We have foot valves made of several materials in our collection.
