    A lot longer than that. But really only became extremely popular with plumbers as we became more aware of them and their quality and the merchants started stocking plenty.
    I know I was using full flow lever valves about 20 years ago and they probably were frequently used 30 years ago for some jobs.

    Thanks guys for your comments, I need to isolate the furthest point of my heating system to make some building alterations. I have since found a Pegler lever ball valve for Water, Steam, Oil and Air so am going to try them. Thanks
