Check out our full-flow water trough float valves that are almost impossible to clog up. The Best Float Valves (aka Watson valves) are the most durable and simple stock tank water trough valves on the market. These valves will successfully run in any type of livestock tank and are recommended for soft water.
We recommend pairing this water trough valve with a 6"x12" float or a 12"x4" pan float.

- Brass valve seat
- Replaceable EPDM rubber washer
- No binding parts

- 18" Straight, Bent lever, or 90° lever or 24" straight lever (for higher pressures). A deflector cap comes with the 90°.
- Bleeder for continuous flow
- Order it ported and plugged if you may want to add ice prevention later.
- Lever can be turned over to allow water to enter from the top of the tank
