Rated 5 out of 5Â by Farad Excellent valves.
These are excellent quality valves, they have the full 22mm bore and don't inhibit flow, note that the box contains two valves.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dontneedanickname Look good quality BUT
A lot longer in the body than other valves of the same type. This may mean that they are better made but unfortunately they don't fit in the gap, well not with the pump between them anyway.
Need the dimensions on the web site so that I don't waste another trip to Screwfix !
If you've got plenty of space I'd say these look better than the cheaper valves but overall length is 60mm compared to about 40 on the cheap ones so as much use as a chocolate fireguard for me.
Never got the chance to test performance or reliability hence the mark

Rated 5 out of 5Â by erbauerfan Don't buy gate valves!
Gate valves of any kind are an absolute pain. Operating them every year to keep them from seizing is fanciful. So by the time I come to use them they're always seized and a waste of time.(hardwater area is probably significant). I've now replaced every gate valve with a ball valve and what a difference!. So when it came to fitting a new pump I looked for ball valves and found these Pegler valves at almost the same price as the 'economy' version. Obviously I can't yet comment on reliability but I'll guess they'll be fine - and won't seize or leak. Why do they still make gate valves I wonder? Then again why do they still make drain cocks that seize and leak instead of with a ball valve? Don't get me started on useless plumbing designs! Let me just praise these Pegler pump valves.

Initially thought they were good but 12 months later when changing the pump they both gushed water through the valve spindle. The old gate valve would only need a bit of ptfe around the spindle and and a quick tighten of the gland nut....cured. Can't do that with these though! Save your money and buy Gate Pump Valve.
