  • Help identify this jail cell valve

    The courthouse this is in was built around 1981, the valve has no identifying markers on it. The chrome push button goes through block wall and actuates the valve which has a spring return as seen in the pic. I need to find repair parts....
    Wondering if any of you have ever come across this beast? I tried replacing the rubber washer but had no luck. It seems a kit is in order if such a thing still exists...

            That's some pretty sloppy work on the install. I am surprised they got away with busting those block out like they did. I only built two prisons, one was a federal minimum or country club but they were pretty stricken on having all block wall filled 100%, no voids and no broken blocks like in your photos. All blocks were saw cut for any opening. I know its not your work I'm just saying that would not be acceptable here and probably most places.
            "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
            John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
