experienced technicians with real-world know-how.

Revolutionary Designez2 cutaway nobg  

1    Actuator - works with standard turns
2    Removable Valve Bonnet - contains resilient 
      wedge and drive mechanism
3    Double Seal Gaskets - maintain system pressure
      and allow rotational milling
4    Fasteners - (stainless steel) secure assembly
5    Compatibility - EZ works with all common and
      many uncommon pipe materials (PVC, SDR, C-900, etc.)
6    Resilient Wedge - encases a ductile iron core
7    Integral Isolation Valve - permits “under pressure” installation
8    Insertion Slot - maintains pipe integrity and creates valve access
9    Castings - are precision machined ductile iron
10  Sacrificial Anode - provides cathodic protection
