Cocky Valve launches Ulti Flo Trough Valves
Cocky Valve has been selling our valves into the Australian Rural sector since 2000. The product was designed by the owner and founder of the company Peter Cocciardi.
Our valves were initially sold at Field days and to local stores throughout Victoria. In 2014 we were part of a national Valve review conducted by the Kondinin Group and we were pleased to finish on top, beating all the more well-known brands. Not bad for a small family business.
The business grew year on year and by June 2017 we were selling into almost 1000 stores nationally and had also opened sales into New Zealand.
Over this time the valve design hadn’t really changed all that much however we did change the material used. The original valve bodies were a Brass body, then we added a SS316 seat, then we changed the body from Brass to SS304 still with the SS316 seat and finally, the current valves are made entirely from SS316 material.
We have recently added to our range a new valve body shape which we have called the Ulti Flo Valve which now incorporates a deflector and have recently patented our Universal Adaptor.
This simple component allows our customers to configure the install so the float can be positioned in 12 different locations. No other valve provides this level of flexibility.
The Ulti Flo Valves come in a complete kit which includes the Valve Body, the float arm, a short kit, and the patented Universal Adapter. When paired with a Cocky valve 8” float that is all that will be required. These kits will fit most troughs currently on the market.
They are available in all common sizes being ¾”, 1”, 1 ¼”, 1 ½” and 2” versions all with standard BSPT threads.
The valves deliver 4 litres per second at just 200Kpa (30 psi) and yet provide a reliable watertight seal at pressures of 90Kpa (130psi). The entire kit is manufactured from SS316 material and is Guaranteed for Life.
There is no better valve in the market and the response from our customers has been overwhelming since it was first launched back in May last year.
If you want a float valve that is reliable, will not break, corrode, or leak and is Guaranteed for Life, then you should get a Cocky valve ULTI FLO valve kit. Because water is too precious to waste.
