The Brady is quiet September 21, 2014
By James White, New Hampshire
My plumber put in a new sump pump. The new sump worked fine, but I began to notice after it finished its cycle there were two loud "clunks". I began to investigate and found the noise was due to the check valve closing and the pressure in there was making a "water hammer" clunk. I mentioned this to the plumber. He told me he put in a good quality check valve, but I could tell he did not seem to know as much on this topic. So I did more research and found the Brady valve online, purchased it and asked him to install it for me. He seemed a little skeptical, but said he'd try it. There is barely a sound when the check valve shuts off now. I am so glad I found this.
Silence at last! August 1, 2014

Total silence. This has changed my life. To think I listened to the clunking thudding sound for over 20 years. Its so quiet I have to remember to check the sump pump system to make sure it is working. I do not hear a sound. I really think it is cool to see the gate work through the clear plastic. I love my Campbell check valve.

I have a one horsepower pump. I was having trouble with all other manufacturer check valves either blowing apart (rubber type) or failing prematurely. I was wondering if I would ever find a good check valve. I found the Campbell. It works with my one horse power pump. I can see the internals to see if everything is working properly. There is no noise either. If you want a reliable quiet check valve look no further. I have bought 3 of these, one for each pump in my house, and will never turn back to any other type.

The Pasco check valve has changed my life. Everything is so quiet in the house now. We live in a high water table so our pump runs every 15 minutes during dry days. I got so used to hearing the clunk of the check valve I have to remind myself to check if the sump pump is actually working now. I can't hear it upstairs any more. This is a great invention.
No more water hammer sounds, April 22, 2013
For years I listened to the water hammer sound when our sump pump went off. I installed a Pasco check valve 23 inches above the pump, and it solved my problem completely. No sound at all now! I have a 1 1/4 PVC so bought adapters to transitiion to the size of my 1 1/4 PVC since the Pasco check valve ends are 1 1/2 inches. It was not that expensive either.
A quiet check valve at last, March 5, 2013

Our sump pump made such a noise when it shut off. I thought it was the pump. In talking to a plumber I learned it was the check valve. I asked him what he would recommend. He suggested the Campbell quiet valve. I found one at Amazon for a great price. I installed it myself. Not really hard to do. Now it is so quiet when the pump runs. This is a great product.
