5,000 psi ball valve

I thought my pump was getting ready to crap the bed but after switching the ball valve from the quick connect on the pump and switched it to the last QC at the end of the line ... the thing is running like a champ again! I had that valve at the pump forever with no problem but recently when I released the pressure from the surface cleaner before switching to the wand it sounded like it was on it's last leg.

For sh$ts and giggles, I moved it to the other end of the line and it's all good. Saved me from from having to purchase a new pump and posting this in case someone else makes the mistake I did.

 

I'm posting Russ's site because they offer great advice and will take the time to work through any problems you have. Thanks Russ!

Are they easy to turn? The one I have pictured takes just about all I have to turn to the ON possition. If it is, I'll be ordering one in the morning!

Ray, YES YES YES,....I used the one you have years ago, and figured up that it was quicker for me to go turn the machine off, come back release the trigger, switch the gun to the Surface cleaner, go back start the machine up...etc etc. Well not actually, but it was a hell of a lot less frustrating.

YES YES YES...like night and day. You'll be amazed. Often times we just open the ball valve for rinsing houses, concrete, filling buckets, etc.etc.
