The new valve that I replaced in my fountain, does not work It is designed much like what is in a standard toilet. When float rises to the proper level, it is supposed to shut off. It does not so am thinking it is a pressure issue. I thought it was a faulty valve but problem was not resolved when replaced with a new one. I am hoping yours will work. I am anticipating having to transition from the water source connection but that should be fairly easy with a trip to the hardware store.

excellent accessory to forget about having to be aware of loading water in the drinking fountains.

I was looking for a good float valve to regulate the water in the trough.

What is the float valve for? What does it do?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This float valve works great for filling up to 30 gallon tanks. It may work for larger tanks but I only used it for smaller tanks. Just hook your hose to it, turn on the faucet, and let the water flow. It takes care of shutting off water flow for you. Of course, there are some caveats- one most notably is that it is probably not wise to leave water pressure turned on to standard garden hoses for extended periods of time (they can burst).
Does this fit the Rubbermaid tanks?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This float will work on all the plastic tanks I have seen. It has an adjustable bracket with 2 thumbscrews that have a span of approximately 2 inches. If the lip of your tank is less than 2 inches wide...this will work. Good luck.
What is the dimensions of the float valve?
Lonnie K on Jul 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 7.5" L x 3" w x 3.5" h This is the dimensions they give via the web site. I always thought it was just a bit smaller then that, but it would be really close if not exact. depending on what system you need for the brackets (included) it might change the depth of the float in the tank.
How is this unit attached to a plastic water trough?

BEST ANSWER: I simply went to my ACE hardware store,got some one eighth thick ,one inch wide aluminum stock and made L shaped brackets(2) so the trough-O-matic hangs on the edge or lip of trough.You need to bend the aluminum pieces,.so a vice, hacksaw, cordless drill and a couple of small bolts and nuts are needed..Very low cost...You make the brackets according to the height of water you desire. .
