Rubbermaid Stock Tank Float Valve is rated 1.9 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Float in valve poorly designed Bad design on the float itself. It's made of 2 half pieces loosely connected that do not properly seal. I ended up using a plastic welder that I had to permanently bond the pieces and seal it all with marine grade silicone. good as gold. I even went as far as to cut and shape a piece of expanded polystyrene (green/blue foam board) to fit inside the float as an added precaution as the foam itself floats and will not absorb water or contaminate whatever is inside the tank.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable, breaks easily Thought it would be a good to use this product with the stock tank. WRONG! Need adapters for standard hose. Float itself just fell off. No washer included. Screw and nut rusted after one season. Tank is under cover. Total waste of money. Not quality for the Rubbermaid name. I have 3 tanks, will be replacing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple install. Excellent performance. Bought about a year too late. Better late than never.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly engineered, surprisingly Luckily, I don't have the water pressure issues so many have talked about. Our tank is gravity fed from a tank up a small hill, so less pressure. However, when we moved the 50 gal tank to clean and ensure level, the float broke in half. Turns out it's made of 2 pieces of plastic loosely snapped together. I have no faith it will hold, as obviously it didn't. You can see the seam in the main website photo. As also mentioned, if anything is connected to it the hose connector covers the left screw. In my case, I had a quick connect adapter there. Seems badly designed overall, and I've filed it under "Read The Reviews Next Time".

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?

Asked by: martin_95037
The float valve is designed for the Stock Tanks and screws to the top.

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)
