Having identified the need in the market for a more compact design flow control unit JFC are delighted to introduce the Hydro-Valve Mini – a vortex flow control device which controls the flow of Stormwater leaving the storage facility before entering the local storm drain or water course. In doing so it minimizes potential flood risk.

It is available in a range of sizes with flow rates varying from 1 to 5 L/s* making it suitable for various specifications.
