Has a hole that fits perfectly on hooked spouts.
Stackable and durable enough to bounce around in a wagon or trailer during tapping.
A great alternative to galvanized buckets, as they will not dent when dropped.
Lasts for years.
Does not rust during the off-season.
Made with FDA-approved material.
The new 5/16" plastic spout with hook is designed to be used with the plastic sap bucket and plastic cover for sap buckets, but can also be used with many non-traditional vessels as well. This spout has a hole in the top that works with flat bucket cover hinges. The hook is also very strong and can take the weight of a 3-gallon bucket that is full of sap.
These heavy duty PVC ball valves are a quarter-turn design, allowing for quick and easy adjustment. The IPS full port openings elminate freezing problems and blockages.
All of our valves have female threaded ends for easy installation into a pipeline system. We recommend using ball valves on both ends of every mainline in a maple sap tubing system, for ease in cleaning and maintenance.
