Metering poppet valve

WaterValve

Default-closed village water spigot

  • To open the flow of water and fill a pail, a villager lifts the body of the valve.
  • To turn off the flow, the villager lets it drop. 
  • An o-ring creates positive shut-off.
  • To reduce water hammering, the valve meters down as it drops.
