K-Valve is a testing and inspection device, engineered to streamline testing sewer and storm water systems used in all residential, commercial and industrial environments. The K-Valve design is multi-faceted to make it easy to install. It is used for the standard inspection and test opening, then a separate test plug is applied during the testing phase and the process is finalised with the permanent plug and cap.
The unique K-Valve test plug controls the flow of water by a simple quarter turn relief valve eliminating risk of injury to the wrists, hands and fingers and reducing the amount of time workers spend in awkward postures. The K-Valve system is also much faster than traditional testing methods, cutting the process down from five minutes to 10-15 seconds.
The K-Vale eliminates any chance of losing a plug and also has a pneumatic functionality that contributes to water saving opportunities.
The K-Valve system is designed for PolyVinyl Chloride (PVC) installations, however a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) version is also being designed for use in locations where alkalis, acids and chemicals as well as trade waste applies such as restaurants, commercial supermarkets and hospitals.
