Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jimboab Very poor quality
I can and will pay over twice as much for a good quality branded product. Particularly something like a gate valve, as it will most likely be me who has to operate it in future when completing further work for my customers.
Of the two valves I recently picked up from Screwfix, one had the gland backnut cross-threaded (!) with a lump of brass swarf hanging out of it, and the other was very stiff to operate. On closer inspection, the gate swivels a worrying amount inside the body of the valve and would likely jam prematurely in future. I will never again buy a Yorkshire/Pegler branded gate valve as the quality is simply abysmal.
Due to the flow-restricting nature of the cheaper gate valves stocked by screwfix, I will buy my gate valves elsewhere in future.
Needless to say, Screwfix staff were understanding and issued my refund with a sincere apology.
DO NOT BUY THESE VALVES! Yorkshire need to up their game.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Totally Useless Valve.
Bought 2 of these Peglar 22m Gate Valves for low-pressure water use, thinking they were high quality products. Each valve was fitted by a different person, one to a cold water pipe and one to a hot water pipe.
Neither valve would shut-off properly, so a totally and completely useless purchase. Worse than that, of course, since they had to be replaced by valves that DID work properly.

I chose this Pegler branded valve even though it is significantly more expensive than some alternatives because the quality looks great.
I wanted the larger size to replace an old pressure regulating valve without modifying the pipework.

These gate valves feel more solid and better quality than cheaper non-branded ones.
Can't really comment on reliability as yet as this was the first time I have replaced 3 gate valves using Pegler brand.
Their larger size makes them easier to swap for generic ones without having to make any adjustments to existing pipework.
