I was considering adding a gatevalve that I already own to my new Octopuss DNW-200. From what I understand, Ball valves are primarily for on or off typically before unions so you can take plumbing for pumps and other equipment on/off. Gate valves are for making fine adjustments such as skimmers or other applications were water flow needs to be regulated. Has anyone modded their new DNW-200 or is the ball valve that comes with it perfectly fine?
