Valterra RV Sewer - Waste Valves - E85-8 Review


Today we're going to take a look at the Valterra EZ Valve electric double rotating flange waste valves with the three 3-inch diameter hubs. Now, this electric waste valves will replace or upgrade the waste valves that are on your RV's black-water and gray-water tanks. Easy operation. With just a flip of the switch right here, the valves will open to allow flow from your black-water and your gray-water tanks.As you can see on the panel right here, they are marked "black tank valve open," and over here, "gray tank valve open." There are lights on each switch that will come on when the valves are open, and if you notice, right under each valve there is a switch also. These are built-in five-amp breakers which'll provide circuit protection. They reset with just the push of the button, so there's no fuses you have to replace.Now, they do use high-torque water-resistant electric motors on each side here, and the 3-inch hubs, one here, one here, and then right here.

They are designed to slide onto your existing waste sewer pipes. It does offer also a tool-free manual override, so if you're doing any dry camping or in the case of a power failure, the manual override up here is very easy to use. There's one on each one. All you have to do is remove the pin right here, turn the handle 90 degrees clockwise, and then you can pull up on the valve to open it, and then just close the valve, turn it back, and then put that back in, and that'll lock it into place. There's one of those on each side.Now, the wiring harness, the switch plate, seals, hardware, all the installation instructions, are all included to install it.

Now, the switchplate is designed to install in your RV's control compartment. Now, they do recommend ABS solvent bond for installation of the valves. We do sell that separately on our website. It is usually listed on this product page as a related product. And these valves are, again, compatible with the 12-volt system.But that should do it for the review on the Valterra EZ Valve electric double rotating flange waste valves with three 3-inch diameter hubs..
