Available on all _” to two-inch Hayward PVC and Corzan CPVC True Union, Z-Ball, and three-way ball valves, the packages offer contractorsa choice of either socket or threaded end connections on anyquantity of ball valves ordered — a change from the previous policy ofshipping both sets of end connections with each ball valve ordered.
