  • Gas log valves

    Why are they directional , They have an arrow stamped on their brass body?
    Ports are offset.
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    I assume you are not talking about a pilot operated control, but just an on/off valve. Depends on what type of valve it is, but many valves have an in and an out, so that when OFF you do not have system pressure against the valve stem packing. Ball valves often don't matter, but other types of valves do.

      correct, the packing and the fact that the pressure shoud be flowing up to the washer, not down onto the washer.

        Five years from now when it starts leaking gas out the packing washer no-one should be able to find you cause you'll be long gone.
        So don't worry about changing it out.

          Don't know why You said that. Valve will go in directional , just curious why some are ,others arn't. This is My home.

            ball valves are non directional. 1/4 turn.

            globe valves are directional. inlet is to the washer bottom. outlet is the packing nut side.
