Valve Kit
Works as expected and was easy to put in. Had no leaks and has held up with several heat/cool cycles.

Almost a great prooduct
The EZ Clean Flush Mount Bulkhead seemed to be what I was looking for in a drain for my mash tun/boil pot. I really like that the dip tube is removable, and although requiring a little effort to install, did not present itself as big an obstacle as others have experienced.

After making the necessary measurements, drilling and deburring the hole, the installation should have been a breeze. This is where I experienced what another poster pointed out, that there was not a good way to hold the assembly to tighten the nut against the collar. More about the collar in a moment.

I improvised during assembly by using a half inch lock nut as a jam nut. After loosely assembling the bulkhead into the pot, I jam the added lock nut and original nut together. Then after thread tape was applied to the end of the nipple, the valve was threaded on and tightened. I then used the added lock nut to jam against the valve and tightened the original nut against the collar after orienting the assembly. Dis-assembly for cleaning would require the reverse of this procedure.

Now about the collar. The collar is marked with a nick to indicate the position it should be assembled. This is to accommodate a contour that is ground into the collar to near match the curvature of the pot. Why? The flange of the bulkhead is not contoured. The wall of the pot should pull up flush, making a nice tidy sandwich between the inside flange, the pot and the collar.

Overall I am happy with the performance so far as I can drain my kettle leaving only one and one half ounces in the bottom and remove the dip tube for easy cleaning.

Great ball valve, supper clean and shiny
Great valve kit, but you really should buy one of those 45 dollar step down bits from Lowes to drill a hole in your kettle if one doesn't exhist already. Installed in less than 5 minutes. Looks great, very suturdy and does exactly as it advertises... keeps the bottom garbage out oof your beer.

can I order this with a 3/8" barb?

How far off the bottom of the pot should I drill the center of the hole? I bough this and a tall boy (not ported) and want to maximize the pickup.
A shopper on Apr 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: the inside spout does not have to be exactly straight down as it shows in the picture. Mine is tilted to the left about a 1/4 inch. I wanted it to be as close to the bottom as possible. The best thing to do is eyeball it before you drill. Oh, and if you don't have a step down bit specifically for stainless, you better get one, because thats the safest way.
How do you tighten the valve onto the bulkhead? It just turns the bulkhead.
A shopper on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It’s a little tricky, and you’ll probably have to problem solve a bit. I used a pair of tongue and groove pliers (aka “straightjaw pliers”) On the round smooth part WITH a rag wrapped around it to avoid scratching it (like you sometimes have to do on the finished side of a faucet or fixture). I was able to get it plenty tight with a few careful adjustments to the manuever. You can do it..be patient it isn’t quick-easy. It’ll stay tight for a long time after that too. Also- you could try gripping the smooth side with a rubber grip mat/disc. I may have done that once.
is the ball valve and other parts 316 or 304 stainless steel?
E R on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are 304 stainless
