Foot valves

Foot valves, cast iron gabions pump, foot valves, are distributed by Tiger Steel, we trade in this product line.

In which the foot valve (pump basket) is a combination valve between a spring check valve and a garbage filter, which is installed on the bottom of the pump tanks and reservoirs to help filter garbage.

And prevent backflow when the pump stops working. The cast iron valve operates fully automatically, and is connected to a flanged system.



Foot valve is composed of 04 main components: valve body, valve stem, valve leaf and filter
Valve body: cast from FCD450 spherical cast iron, both sides are covered by high-grade epoxy paint with a thickness of ≥300µm

– Leaf valve: round disc is covered with 100% EPDM rubber in accordance with clean water standards

– Valve: manufactured from 304 stainless steel with high durability against rust.

– Filter mesh: manufactured from 304/316 stainless steel, high durability, anti-rust.


Working principle:

The foot valve works like a spring check valve, when the pump operates, the water pressure will push the valve leaf.

The spring is compressed, the valve is in an open state to allow water to enter the system.

The filter mesh works to prevent the particles from entering the system, causing the valve to jam and other accessories leading to water leakage.

When the pump stops working, the foot valve works to prevent backflow.
Keep water in the pipeline, avoid loss of priming water for the pump.


Automatic operation based on the force of water flow, gentle operation, no noise.
Valves are manufactured from cast iron FCD450, stainless steel 304/316 to prevent rust, safe for clean water.

– Low cost, light weight valve, compact design, less space for installation.

Notes on installation:

The suction valve is installed in the flange system, so the following points should be noted when installing:
– A gasket can be used between the flange and the valve to increase the tightness of the system.
– The pipe flange size must be the same as the valve flange size.
Valves are mounted vertically.
