5/8"x3/4", 3/4" & 1" Setters with angle ball valve will be reduced port unless otherwise requested. Reduced port valves usually provide suitable water flow. (Add "-FP" to the catalog number for full port.) The 5/8" Port Angle Ball Valve is a one-way directional valve designed for the inlet side of the meter and should not be used as a customer shut-off on the customer side of the meter.

■ Angle Cascading Check Valve contains 3/4" internal components. This valve meets the ASSE 1024 flow requirements of a 1" valve.

NOTE: Inlet and outlet connections are 1" in size, for 1" meter settings, unless otherwise specified.

Female iron pipe by Pack Joint couplings are used to provide 1" PET, PEP or PVC inlet/outlet combinations (see Catalog Section J) and are sold separately.
