The Tideflex Check Valve is a revolutionary design for backflow prevention. Tideflex Valves are a one-piece rubber matrix of numerous natural and synthetic elastomers and ply reinforcement, similar in construction to a truck tyre. The valves operate using line pressure and back-pressure to open and close, so no outside energy source is required.
The Tideflex valve has an extremely low cracking pressure so the valve is self-draining which eliminates standing water and maximizes storage volume (attenuation) in the upstream system. Tideflex Check Valves make excellent replacements for ineffective metal flap-gate valves because they are constructed out of reinforced rubber. Therefore there are no moving parts that can corrode, warp or freeze.
Tideflex Check Valves are cost-effective because have a long life span and require no maintenance.
