14th December, 2023 -

T-T Flow is delighted to announce that they have been awarded accreditation from the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) Ltd for the full range of swing check valves.

WRAS contributes to the protection of public health by preventing contamination of public water supplies and encouraging the efficient use of water by promoting and facilitating compliance with the Water Supply Regulations and Scottish Byelaws.  These require that a water fitting should not cause waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of the water supply, and must be ‘of an appropriate quality and standard’.

WRAS approval is granted directly by representatives of the water suppliers and is accepted as evidence of compliance by every water supplier in the UK.  To qualify, the full range of Swing Check Valves has undergone a rigorous testing procedure for approval.

The now fully WRAS approved Swing Gate Valves (DN50-DN300) offer epoxy-coated ductile iron bodies and metal-to-metal seals for vertical and horizontal installation. These models are available with an optional external weighted arm. This valve is used to prevent reverse flow and is suitable for potable water, wastewater, and sewage applications.

Peter Hindley, Commercial Director at T-T Pumps, comments

“We are pleased to gain this approval as we have worked hard to ensure that our Swing Check Valves are of the highest quality. This approval means that these valves have undergone mechanical and water quality testing to avoid contamination of the water supply.”
