This new cartridge-style pressure-reducing valve is designed with all parts contained in the one-piece cartridge. The cartridge can be removed without draining the system or reducing line pressure, says the manufacturer. The unit features a one-handed fast-fill button, which delivers increased flow to speed system fill times, while its dial-in pressure setting allows for easy adjustment throughout the 10 to 15 psi range without the need for an external gauge, the company says. A patented “comb design” eliminates problems with excessive noise, says the company.
