  • Pool fill valve retrofit

    I have a customer that wants me to retrofit his current filling system.

    What he has is about a dinner plate sized canister set in concrete. Probably about 15 inches deep. 3/8 female threads in the side about 3/4 of the way up where the old fill valve was set.

    Now I have already tried a fluidmaster, but I can't get cleareance for the lid to close down it is about 1 inch too tall, and it's absolutely as low as possible. Basically I have a 1/4 turn angle stop at the very bottom of the canister now, with a chrome supply going to the fluidmaster for support. Everything is as close and tight as possible, but I can't get clearance.

    Any ideas?
