Does the Job
Best price I could find. Had a little trouble with installation, but the product works very well. By far the best customer service I've received.

Basic plumbing skills needed
Very easy to install if you have basic plumbing skills. You just need the basic tools like pvc cutter or handsaw, PVC cleaner, PVC cement and rags. It seems likely that it will last longer than the old valve.

don't know
I don't know because I still haven't gotten the filter tank that I am planning to use it with. I'll give a better review when that all happens.
