Cheap Gate Valves for my Hybrid Snorkel Mod!!!

He's got 10 available and three are claimed. As long as no more than ten are sold altogether they are 12.50 plus shipping. I paid $40 plus shipping for mine. This is a hell of a deal!

Edit: Sorry, they're $12 even, lol. Shipping averages about $10-$15.

With the type of wheeling you do, I'm not so sure you'd need it.

That's not bad at all. Every plumbing store I went to told me to go to an RV supply store and they kept telling me $60-$80.

Yeah, it did everything I wanted it do do. As long as you cross your T's and dot your i's, all will go well. Sealing everything and using quality materials is the key! I'll have a detailed write up in the "How-To Submission" section in the upcoming week. Look for that if you need any help!

Well I lost the bid at 15 bucks. I didn't think that many more would bid and figured I had it in the bag. Lost it tho so I found another for cheaper and in black. Buy it now is like 11 bucks. Shipped for 10. Heres a link
