Understanding High-Flow Valves

Recent trends in home construction and strict interpretation of plumbing codes are forcing the water conditioning industry to offer systems with higher flow ratings. While the need for higher flow rates in larger homes is genuine, the actual flow rates that are encountered are likely to be less than those predicted using the traditional fixture count method to calculate flows. The system manufacturer needs to carefully consider all components used to assemble the system when designing a water conditioner to meet a specific flow requirement.


Luxury homes dominate the market trends for valves compatible with high-flow fixture demands
