No O-Rings in threaded ends
Posted: 3/31/2014 from MAHWAH, NJ UNITED STATES
Valves supplied with O-rings in socket ends, but not in threaded ends.
Used threaded ends without checking for O-rings and therefore created minor flood.
Move the O-rings from the sockets to threaded? - It's not stated explicitly in the instructions - and by the way how much is Spears saving by omitting two O-rings on a $37 valve?
I did speak with Spears distribution in PA - they will send me the missing O-rings.

True union ball valve
Posted: 12/6/2011 from Vallejo, CA UNITED STATES
If you’re installing valves in a system true union is the only way to do. Yes they cost more; no they do not freeze up ever. They are easy to clean you just take the tool that some with it pop out the seats and soak them in vinegar something that I do every other year or so which is not much. You could do more but I found it is not necessary. The operation is true also. So if you got the extra money to do it throw out the regular ball valves and get the true in the long run you will never forget it.
Oh yes don't forget the gold card they are not cheap
Good luck reefing,
