Webstone’s Pro-Pal dielectric water heater supply valves simplify the installation and service of any water heater.

Webstone Pro-Pal dielectric water heater supply valves
Webstone’s Pro-Pal dielectric water heater supply valves simplify the installation and service of any water heater, combining a dielectric union, a ball valve, and a 1/2-inch FIP vacuum relief valve port into a single forged dezincification resistant brass body. For areas where an expansion tank is also required, the dielectric water heater supply valve with expansion tank service is a fully integrated solution. It features an extended arm with a 3/4-inch FIP port and 3/4-inch capped hose drain. Both models are available with or without the vacuum relief valve and a choice of FIP, MIP, sweat, press or push ends to connect to system piping. 800-255-9529;

Quick Fitting CopperHead slip repair couplings
Quick Fitting’s CopperHead slip repair couplings offer a fast and easy way to permanently and reliably fix pipe leaks and breaks. For most repairs, only a single coupling is needed, compared to the two sweat copper fittings that are traditionally used. Suitable for copper, PEX and CPVC tubing, the couplings are more forgiving because the cut distance doesn’t have to be exactly right. The dual-seal design allows for higher pressure ranges and better pressure performance, and the outer seal protects the inner seal from degradation throughout the lifetime of the connection. 877-238-4826;
