Rubbermaid Stock Tank Float Valve, 4248-06 is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good unit Has leaked since day 1 at hose fitting. Used rubber gaskets and pipe tape. Waste of money....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garden Fountain Float Valve The float valve is working as expected and I'm very happy with it. I am using it to keep the water in my fountain pond up to a level so that the fountain pump keeps working properly. The float is designed to work in a much larger basin that mine so I had to make some adaptations to it to better fit my purpose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks at hose connection. This is my second one. First one had same issue. The connection to the hose bib leaks after a while. Wish Rubbermaid would come up with a better design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Easy to install It worked fine for the first few weeks then started leaking where the hose bib is located. Paid extra for a better maintenance free product but did not happen.

Rubbermail stock tank float. what size nipple does it take? A standard 3/4" nipple does not fit

Asked by: willybill
According to the manufacturer a 3/4" garden hose does fit. The thread size is 1-11.5 American standard hose coupling thread.

Does this product stay put around the rim of a 5 gallon bucket?

The float valve is designed for the Stock Tanks and screws to the top.

Will the product work on a gravity feed system or does it need to be on a pressurized system?

Asked by: Txbowhntr

I like this fill valve a lot, it seems to be durable compared to others. But is it serviceable? It has a simple rubber seal that seals the water, can I replace that seal? where is it avail?? Shame to trash it every time a simple seal fails!

Asked by: kgw51gmc
I'm sorry but we do not sell components for the float valve.

Can you adjust the float for water levels 

Asked by: Terry66
I'm not sure I understand your question - The flow rate of the valve is dependent on the water pressure (average is 40-60 PSI) When the water level is high enough, the float valve will stop flow in or out of the tank.

Is there an adjustment on it? It takes about 20 minutes to put a gallon of water in tank

Asked by: Kajun67
Flow rate is most dependent on the water pressure (average is 40 - 60 PSI). Flow rate is also dependent on the diameter of the hose attached to the valve (approx 100 gallons per hour at 40-60 PSI)
