Agreed!!! Diagraming your plumbing is a must!!! Its good to visualize and count.

That being said, there is one thing I slightly disagree with.. you CAN do proportional control via motorized ball valves... I do it on my existing system. with a manual open/close switch (easy to implement) you can open and close the valve partially to achive the same thing. Its a little tricky at first, but you do get a feel for it!

THAT being said.. manual is easier for proportional flow for sure! Hopefully one day we will solve that problem!!!

You can also (and I know its more $$$$) put a manual valve after a motorized valve to give BT the control on start/stop, and use the manual for proportion

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I think I have a design I am happy with. I'm in for 5 - 2-way valves and 5 - 3-way valves, 1/2" all the way around. Thanks, Bill

Considering the new cost of the 3-way valves, I am going to try it with 2-way valves all the way around. With that cancel the 3-ways for me, and bump me up to a total of 12 - 2-way valves.

Hey Folks,

I wanted to give you a quick update on the Motorized Ball Valve Preorder, specifically, the 3 way valves.

Someone pointed out to me that the 3 way valves I priced at $45 are not rated for boiling liquid. They are only rated to 90c.

The 2 way valves are from a different vendor, and their valves are rated above boiling, but their 3 ways are more expensive.

So, I would like to offer anyone who wants 3 way valves to switch to the valves that are rated correctly at a price of $70 per valve plus shipping (which I will have once we know the number ordered).

Again, this is a pre-order, and below Retail cost. I am willing to still ship the 90c valves for those who want them for $45 plus whatever shipping is depending on the volume of orders.

Please note, we will not carry the 90c rated valves once the store is fully open, as we do not want to risk a failure or other issues, even if they are a remote possibility.

Please let me know what you want to do.

Again, for valves rated above boiling, pricing would be:
2 Way - $25 plus shipping
3 Way - $70 plus shipping
