Valve sealing

Post by Fa_St » 12 Dec 2017, 14:12

Why valves are not sealed for steam or water spray?
I don't think to a full immersion of the valve in water but is not possible to lose money only for o little leak of water for a valve made for work in a hydraulic system.

i reckon if the mechanical part of the original valve fails, the electronics will be the least of your problem depending how quick you notice it #!

It only takes a very small leak to wreck one of the SmartValves. The leak I had was so small that the water evaporated as it left the valve so did no other damage apart from wreck the electronics.
