Adjustable float valve

ykerzner(9 TX)February 13, 2014

I'm looking for a small float valve that can fit in a 5-gallon bucket, where the actual float can be adjusted to the side to avoid the netpot in the center. Do any places sell really small valves like that?

The alternative would be to use a , but it's much more expensive, since no places in the US sell it.

My setup will have a reservoir on a balcony, with the actual pot halfway up the stairs to the second story, and air and water tubes running down to the pot. The float valve would allow the pot to basically be self-watering (and I don't anticipate that the root ball will interfere with the valve).

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I've seen them at home depot/lowes.. But the place I ordered my cheap RO system sells a few of them too.

You can buy a larger one, mount it below the net pot, and remove the float and make a bracket (read: bend coat hanger) to get the float up higher without the bulk of the valve being up there too.

Here is a link that might be useful: Float valves
