      Hydroseal Kaplan ball valves any good?

      Does anyone have any experience with the Hydroseal Kaplan true union ball valves? Here is a link on Amazon:

      https://www.amazon.com/HYDROSEAL-Kap...s%2C200&sr=8-2

      They get some great reviews and even have PTFE seats.

      I was going to buy a few of the 2" Red Flag valves for about $22 a piece at https://www.supplyhouse.com/Red-Flag...BoCn0oQAvD_BwE but they are back ordered until December. I need them sooner. I was also going to get a couple of Georg Fischer 375 valves for the most critical locations. They are $60 - $65 best price.

      At about $35 a valve (and free shipping with our Prime membership), these Hydroseal valves look pretty good. I am thinking about just using them for everything. Any thoughts?

      I have used them in half inch size and had no problems. They seem well made.

      I purchased one for waste valve on my Zakki Sieve. A good valve!

      I need goods ones for the same thing, on the Zakki Sieve waste port, and on the bottom drain line into the sieve. I want two matching valves in case the waste port valve has a problem in the future.

      Anyway, the Red Flag valves are back in stock at SupplyHouse.com, so I'm back to plan A; 4 Red Flag valves and 2 "good" valves, but I think I will go with the Hydroseal Kaplan's instead of the Georg Fischer 375 valves for the "good" ones at about half the price.

      I am almost thinking of buying a spare Red Flag valve in case there is an issue in the future since they are so cheap. Does that sound silly?
