    Default True Union Ball Valves

    Are there any true union ball valves made in America? All I have found are from Communist China and are almost as hard to operate as my chinese valves that are about 5 years old. They are 1 1/2" valves for the return on my swimming pool.
    I am just fed-up with buying Chinese junk!
    If I can't find valves that can be operated by my wife, there is no need for me to change the ones I have.
    Am I wrong in assuming American made valves are available and are easier to operate?

    It could also be blamed on a "senior moment"
    Thanks for pointing this out.

    Don't bother deleting the posts, mistakes happen. I was wondering why the duplicate post. My condolences to you and your family. I do hope the links posted are helpful.
