    Hey everyone,

    I am getting the parts together to finish up my basement plumbing. I am now at the point of getting the ejector pump and associated valves.

    I am going with the Zoeller M267 pump and I need to get a check valve and ball valve. Originally I was going to get the zoeller check valve and a standard issue ball valve, then I found this:

    This is about double what the separate pieces would be, so is it worth it? If any parts fail can they be replaced??? or do I have to replace the whole deal?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks...Mike

    That is a much better valve.
    Most check valves give a helluva thump when the pump shuts off.
    This one is quiet.

    valves

    If the ball valve fails you will have to cut it off the pipe and get a new one. Parts may or may not be available, so you might have to buy a new combo and use the parts from it if anything else goes bad.
