This Kerick MA3P2 float valve is a tank-mount style with an adjustable arm, and is made of PVC with 18-8 stainless steel hardware. The valve has a 0.093" orifice and its estimated rate of flow is 1.3 gallons per minute (gpm) at 40 pounds per square inch (psi) and 1.5 gpm at 60 psi. The valve inlet has 3/8" NPT male extended threads with a sealing washer and jam nut for mounting through a tank wall, and the valve outlet is free flowing. The valve is made of National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) approved PVC (polyvinyl chloride), its replaceable seals are made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) for durability and chemical resistance, and its hardware is made of 18-8 stainless steel for corrosion resistance. The valve has a 1.5" in diameter and 4" long polyethylene float attached to the adjustable shutoff lever arm. This float valve is suitable for use in a variety of applications, such as fountains and livestock water tanks.
Float valves use a rod and float ball attached to a valve shutoff lever to control flow in or out of a tank. The float ball rises or falls with the level of liquid in the tank, changing the angle of the valve shutoff lever. When the angle of the valve lever changes sufficiently, the valve opens or closes. Float valves are rated according to the volume of liquid that can flow through them at a particular pressure to ensure the tank can be refilled as quickly as it is emptied. The material that a float valve is constructed from must be suitable for the liquid in which it operates, which may be corrosive or at an extreme temperature. Float valves are used to automatically regulate the level of liquid within tanks in a variety of applications, such as fountains, livestock water tanks, cooling towers, and chemical manufacturing plants.
Kerick Valve manufactures fluid level control valves for industrial applications. The company, founded in 1994, is headquartered in Jacksonville, FL.

Unfortunately, the problem that persisted with my last valve was still present. The valve tended to reach a sympathetic frequency with the wave created in the chamber by the release of water from the valve. That is, the valve would open and spray water into the chamber, the sudden spray would create a wave that would close and reopen the valve, and the valve would open a little wider and spray a little harder, creating a bigger wave that opened the valve a little wider, and so on, resulting in a chuga-chuga-chuga noise at the filler and pulsing water flow from faucets in the house.
I fixed the problem by placing a split rubber washer on the arm of the valve. This diverted the spray enough to prevent the oscillation from starting.
My one year old inground pool auto fill valve leaked and wasted a lot of water and chemicals. This went unnoticed by my pool service.
The replacement is an exact valve.
Make sure your old is same thread size as the replacement before ordering. Use teflon tape and teflon pipe dope on threads and remove the float at the adjusting screw. Hand tighten and align with a rag for a gripper. Turn on water and check for leaks. Try not to use a wrench on the plastic valve body.
