The premium Best Float Valve (aka Watson valve) is the most durable and simple livestock water trough float valve on the market. These float valves will successfully run in any type of water tank and will handle up to 90 psi.
This premium kit upgrades the valve seat and float chain to stainless steel. Unless you have sulfur in your water (in which case we recommend our Stainless Steel Kit or Supreme Kit), this premium kit is the best option for most folks. The few more dollars you spend on the stainless seat and chain will give you about 3x the lifespan over our standard valve with the brass seat and zinc chain.
