Custom stainless steel extension stems along with stainless steel Trumbull stem guides have been installed at the Steinbach Secondary Water Supply System in Steinbach, Manitoba to operate the valves in the reservoir from the floor above the reservoir. The stem guides used are adjustable to support a stem that is located 2” to 26” off a wall. The stems connect to the 2” AWWA nut on the valve using a stainless steel bottom coupling. Longer offset guides are also available from Trumbull along with various diameters and materials of extension stems. Blog will be updated once the operators are installed above the reservoir floor.
