The Hayward Story
Hayward Flow Control Systems, a division of Hayward Industries, has been manufacturing industrial thermoplastic valves and process control products since the inception of the thermoplastic valve industry. For more than 40 years we have remained committed to producing the highest quality products while providing outstanding service that exceeds customer expectations. Hayward has earned an unsurpassed reputation for product design, manufacturing precision, quality assurance, experience and know-how, and total commitment to customer satisfaction and support.
Hayward Industries was formed in 1923 by Irving M. Hayward. It was a small company, located in Brooklyn, NY, making specialty metal valves and industrial flow control products. When Mr. Hayward retired in 1964 the company was acquired by its present management. With that, a new period of growth and diversification began, one that continues to this day. Management realized an opportunity existed for plastic, rather than metal swimming pool filters and accessories, and diversified into the swimming pool market. Rapid growth in the pool business resulted in the creation of Hayward Pool Products, Inc. At the same time, through a combination of acquisitions, modernization of the manufacturing facilities and product innovations, the industrial plastic valve and pipeline strainer business grew as well - and became Hayward Flow Control Systems.
When selecting plastic valves and process control products, consider the following:
Reliable by Design Hayward valves are designed using the latest state-of-the-art equipment. Our Computer Aided Design (CAD) system, linked to finite element software, provides accurate and essential stress analysis. Hayward valves are designed to be strong–with material where it counts. Pressure and prolonged operation will not fatigue Hayward valves. Thus, Hayward products provide years of maintenance-free service.
Valve parts twist and turn in operation, and must fit precisely with a perfect seal. At Hayward, valve components are precision molded. However, when required, critical dimension valve parts are precision machined in areas such as o-ring grooves, seats, and ball surfaces. In either case, fine tolerances are maintained and, as a result, Hayward valves seal bubble tight and provide years of dependable service.
Hayward valves are 100% tested with the latest state-of-the-art testing equipment. Every Hayward product must pass pneumatic/hydrostatic tests before it is released for shipment. Our reputation for quality and reliability is unsurpassed. Hayward has been manufacturing thermoplastic valves since the beginning of the industry. Our commitment to, and support of, the industry is strong. In addition to a tradition of experience and know-how, Hayward also has a highly qualified field sales organization that provides customer assistance, training, and field support.
Hayward remains committed to new product developments and innovative process technology that produces high quality, reliable products and to total customer satisfaction. We will continue to advance fluid process technology as the leading American manufacturer of industrial plastic valves and process control products.

TCB Series Industrial True Union Ball Check Valves
1/2" to 2" - PVC, CPVC, PPL, and PVDF
Backflow Prevention: Hayward’s TCB Series Industrial True Union Ball Check Valves prevent reversal of flow in piping systems. They are ideal where backflow could potentially cause damage to pumps, filters, or process equipment.
Automatic Operation: TCB Series True Union Ball Check Valves operate without the need for any adjustments or settings. Line pressure moves the solid plastic ball off the elastomer seat, opening the valve. When the inlet flow stops, back pressure moves the ball back onto the seat – stopping the flow. Additionally, this valve features a unique square-cut elastomer seat to seal at low back pressures.
True Union Design: Our ball check valve features a true union design. This allows for easy removal from a piping system without breaking down piping connections. Just unscrew the two assembly nuts and lift the valve body out of the line.
No Corrosion Failures: Because of their all-plastic construction, these valves will never jam or stick as a result of rust or corrosion. Also they will not contaminate sensitive fluids that come into contact with them.
