About Float Valves
Float valves, also known as ballcock or ball tap valves, are control valves used to monitor and regulate water levels in various vessels, such as water tanks, standpipes, reservoirs, and more. These valves can be used for filling control by closing at a set level to avoid overflow and backflow or opening at a set level to prevent the vessels from being overfilled. Float valves are commonly used in toilets and urinals and are just some of the toilet parts available at Zoro.com.
