Edstrom Vari-Flo Valve with Stainless Steel Stem guard, 1/8

Price: $7.75
Item Number: 1000-1452-GP
This valve is designed for guinea pigs and features a play guard that prevents GPs from wasting water. The guard is stainless steel. This model has a standard 1/8" mpt connection for threading into rigid PVC pipelines. (The Fitting Tee Adapter PVC, 1630-2914-100, can be used for mounting in 1/2" PVC pipe)

How it Works: To drink, animals simply move the stainless steel stem by biting or licking, releasing water. When the animal releases the end of the stem, the elasticity of the silicone rubber diaphragm located behind the stem head pushes the head back to the closed position, stopping the flow of water.
