Product Description

The WaterSaver Faucet Co.'s L4260-158 series fixtures are designed for mounting on vertical surfaces such as walls, pipe chases, and service panels. They feature a single L4260 ball valve with a spring-loaded handle that locks in the closed position. To open it, the user must lift while turning to unlock, a feature that prevents accidental activation. This safety feature is required for flammable gas service under certain plumbing codes (please check before ordering).

These valves are designed for on/off control of compatible laboratory gases, liquids, and vacuum at pressures up to 75 PSI. If needed, the valve may be specially cleaned, lubricated and packaged for pure gas service (tick the checkbox when ordering). This valve is certified for gas service by the American Gas Association (AGA) and the Canadian Gas Association (CGA) and is recommended for ADA-compliant applications.

This valve is available in two configurations:

  • The L4260-158WSA has a 3/8" IPS mounting shank, locknut and washer and is designed for installation were there is access behind the wall during installation.
  • The L4260-158FT has a 3/8" NPT female inlet and is designed for installation where there is no access behind the wall during installation. The flange is threaded onto a nipple stubbed out from the wall and then the threaded escutcheon is then backed up to the wall to secure the valve and conceal the pipe.

The valve body and handle are forged brass with a polished chrome plated finish. The valve units features a quarter-turn open/close, a chrome-plated brass ball with molded TFE seals, and removable ten-serration hose end that varies in diameter from ~1/2" down to 5/16".

The valves also have a plastic index disc indicating the type of service the valve is used for. Standard options include air, carbon dioxide, cold water, deionized water, distilled water, gas, hot water, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, steam and vacuum (replacement buttons are available as item # Lbutton). Additional indexing options are also available. If you select oxygen as your index button, the valve(s) must be specially cleaned and the system will automatically add the fee for that to the price of the valve.

Each unit is fully assembled and factory tested prior to shipment. 

Installation guidelines are available on-line. The specification drawings for the L4260-158WSA and L4260-158FT are available as PDF files.

Note: The equivalent versions of these with the L4200 quarter-turn ball valve (without the lift-to-turn safey feature) are listed under item # L4200-158.

Other mounting options include deck mounted (L4260-131 series), and wall/panel/overhead mounted (L4260-141 series).

FOR LABORATORY USE ONLY - These valves are not suitable for potable drinking water as they are made of brass which may have traces of lead.
