I recently replaced a commercial pool boiler in an existing indoor pool that has a running filter system with 10" PVC supply and feed lines that dropped down 2" copper to the old boiler. To keep the pool down a minimum amount of time ( health department requires filtration to run ) I used 2" Rigid propress ball valves on the feed and supply for the boiler. The local inspection turned down the valves because he said the were not approved and I needed sweat or threaded valves installed in addition to the propress valves. Anybody else ever hear of a similar interpretation?

    Your local "administrative authority" is usually the last word. Have you shown the inspector the approval ratings from the valve manufacturer?  Have you looked at the code for specific valve exemptions?

    Believe it or not

    a lot of inspectors are not familiar with all the materials available from Pro Press so they will not approve what they are not familar with. Get the specs as Paul said and see what they say.
