trudesign ball valves
TruDesign Manufactured in glass-reinforced nylon composite with high impact and tensile strength resulting in a light weight unit, no corrosion or electrolysis issues. The ball and sealing rings utilise a PTFE polymer to ensure a smooth action, and continuous ease of operation.
TruDesign ball valves are manufactured with a Teflon impregnated Ball running on Teflon rings, so no oil or grease is required. Turn the handle every few months just to keep the movement free.
Sikaflex 291i is a good adhesive sealant with no reaction with the plastic.
You can also use PTFE tape for a shorter-term solution.
Load bearing collars
TruDesign Load Bearing Collars are designed for use with TruDesign Skin Fittings and Ball Valves.
With the Collar in place, the Skin Fitting-Ball Valve-Hose Tail assembly will withstand a 500 lb (227 kg) static force applied to the Hose Tail end of the assembly, for a minimum of 30 seconds – complying with North American ABYC H-27 standards.
Flexibility at its best
Manufactured from a glass reinforced nylon compososite, the TruDesign Aquavalve combines high strength and minimal weight with 360 hose tail combinations.
Bulkhead hole diameter for Aquavalve through Bulkhead is 49mm

Trudesign saddle clips & Bases
Designed for tidy routing of cables, wires, and plumbing hoses. The base can either be screwed or glued to a wall or bulkhead providing a ‘mounting base’ which can be used on its own with a cable-tie for tying down cables and wires or have one of four sizes of Saddle Clips attached to it for supporting various diameters of plumbing hose.
For increased security, a cable-tie can be threaded through the Base under and around the Saddle Clip and hose then done up, locking all components together. If plumbing layouts change in the future, simply remove the hose from the Saddle Clip, then pinch the arms of the Saddle Clip together to unclip and detach it from the Base. A different size of Saddle Clip can then be clicked on to the Base to accept a different diameter of plumbing hose. Base available in 1 size supporting 4 sizes of Saddle Clips which cover a range of varying hose diameters
