Video Transcript for Valterra RV Sewer - Waste Valves - T40A Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Valterra RV waste valve. This unit is going to add or replace a waste valve gate in your RV's waste system. It's made from a durable and strong black plastic construction. This valve is going to feature the same fittings on each end. It's going to have a 3-inch spigot on each side. It's going to connect between two plumbing pipes.

A few measurements to go over with you real quick. I just want to give you the internal diameter right here. Inside edge to inside edge, that looks to be right on 3 inches. Outside edge to outside edge is 3-1/2. It's going to be the same on this side.

Inside edge to inside edge 3 inches. Outer edge to outer edge 3-1/2 inches. It's also going to feature the easily accessible T-handle that makes opening and closing the gate very quick and easy. The unit's already assembled. It has the appropriate seals internally for leak-proof performance. The other thing I want to do is just go over measurement with it in the closed position and then with the handle fully extended.

Measuring just like this, that looks to be around 9-1/2 inches. Measuring with that handle extended we're looking at a little bit closer to 13 inches. That's going to do it for today's look at the Valterra RV waste valve.

  • Determining the Correct Waste Valve on RV
    I appreciate the photos but I"m not quite sure what you have under there in regards to pipe diameter. The black water tank valve will depend on if it is a hub connection, spigot connection and the diameter.

Essentially, spigot means...

  • Replacement Black Water Tank Valve For 3" Tank Pipe
    It depends on your connection with the pipe if you need a spigot to spigot or hub to hub valve. A hub connection is the female connection that accepts a spigot. The spigot is a male connection. If your existing valve slides into the 3" pipe then you need the spigot connection. The Valterra Bladex Waste Valve for RV Black Water Tank - 3" Spigot to 3" Spigot part # T40A is designed to slide into 2 separate 3" sewer pipes which sounds like what you have. You will need Valterra ABS Solvent...

  • Which Valterra Bladex Waste Valve Will Fit Schedule 40 PVC Pipe 3 inch Diameter
    Schedule 40, 3 inch PVC pipe has an outer diameter of 3.5 inches and an inner diameter of 3 inches. The Valterra Bladex Waste Valve # T40B you referenced is designed to fit OVER a 3 inch diameter pipe so what you'd need is the spigot version to fit into your 3 inch pipe like # T40A.

  • Could Valterra Bladex Waste Valve Be Used with 3-1/2 inch Valve Body
    If the 3-1/2 inch diameter you mentioned is the outside diameter and the inside was 3 inch yes, the Valterra Bladex Waste Valve Body for RV Black Water Tank # T1003VPM could be used. If you needed the entire valve assembly you'd want the part # T40A instead. This comes with a spigot fitting on either end of the valve.
