Ritchie Customer Question – What float goes with your valve

Ritchie Industries maintains a consistency with our parts and our product. Our waterers are known to last well past their 10 year warranty so we have made an effort to keep our parts interchangeable with our older units. Ritchie features two valve sizes, the 1/2″ valve series and the 3/4″ inch valve series. The 3/4″ valve series only has one float to choose from that will work on all waterers with the 3/4″ valve. Because the units that feature a 1/2″ valve generally have smaller valve chambers, we offer 3 different float sizes to fit the appropriate chamber. Engineer Ed explains where each float and corresponding valve can be found.
