Do valves in pipelines need to be supported?

06/26/2013

The width of the valve and the amount of water in the pipeline needs to be taken into account.

 

The weight of the valve cannot always be supported by the pipeline and may even cause damage to the pipeline over time. This is why many valves are designed with a flat base or “feet,” such as the GA Resilient Seated Ball Valve. Mounting bases are also available to provide additional support for taller installations.
