Float Valves

A float valve is a device which can be used to control the level of a fluid in a tank by opening and closing a valve in response to changes in the fluid level. The basic float valve includes a balloon float, an air-filled float which is sealed so that water cannot enter, attached to an arm. When the water level is low, the float hangs, keeping the valve open. As the water level rises, the float starts to float on the surface as a result of buoyancy, causing the arm to move, and eventually pulling the valve closed so that water will stop flowing. This process is entirely mechanical, requiring no human input.
