solenoid valve pressure
Hey folks, I'm trying to automate and solve some problems with my current plumbing.
I'm running a Jebao 8000 marine pump to pump my nutrients through 1" PVC to floraflex manifolds at my tables. I have 9 manifolds total running off this pump.
I would like to segment those manifolds and I currently do so with ball valves.
The ball valves all leak at the threads on the output side, and I've tried replacing them with a different brand and same problem. I have floraflex solenoid valves to replace them.
My question is, will my pump have enough pressure to work with these valves, and do folks think that the nylon valves will perform better than the plastic ball valves?
