Can I use my Hansen fittings with my swimming pool/spa pool set up?
No, as the high concentration of chlorine used in the water for pools, will attack the material. The fitting material is only suitable for use with domestic water. Hansen products that are used in this application will not be covered by warranty.
   
Are Hansen Ball Valves Frost Friendly?
Hansen Ball Valves are Frost Friendly and have been tested in frost conditions. Results may vary in freezing conditions.
   
What temperature can I use Hansen fittings at?
Hansen have tested all its products for use with cold water up to a maximum temperature of 60°C (140°F). We do not recommend the use of these products with temperatures higher than 60°C (140°F) as plastic expands due to temperature increases. Hansen cannot guarantee the products will perform when used with temperatures over 60°C (140°F). Hansen products that have failed in temperatures higher than 60°C (140°F) will not be covered by warranty.
