    Instead of buying another valve that you may not be happy with why not just spend the £ and get a Forge?

  9. Are Forge's valves not made in China? I'm hearing a lot of bad things about Forge DVs ATM, but my own seems fine. Maybe this is why.

    Forge may well be made in China, I don't actually know, but a lot of UK products are made in China, with the right factory, their technological advancements over UK industry are advantageous, and coupled with low labour rates, it produces a superior product for the UK market.

    A cheap chinese factory is the same as a cheap UK factory - rubbish. However a good chinese factory is almost always better than a good UK one.
    China are the world leaders in manufacture.

    That said, if Forge are using UK processes, then maybe they SHOULD investigate the Asian factories.

    Regardless, I've NEVER heard aything bad about Forge, and I speak to a lot of people and am on a lot of websites.

    Forge products are A1, in fact I spent another £40 with Forge on assorted silicone bits yesterday and they will continue to have my business.

    I would have no issue buying their Diverter Valves.

    (Although they still havent answered about why they use OE heat piping on their FMIC's)

    Any more info? I've always found Forge DV's to be excellent value/quality, and their customer service is usually great.

    what makes you think that a copy would be any different form the
    forge valve?

    Its a solid metal part with one moving part. cant see any major problems making these. the only difference i could see maybe different material.
    its done on a CNC isnt it so one is going to produce the same thing as another, right?
