Zodiac Delrin valves

After my recent purchase of 310 Zodiac (see original thread here: ( For all Zodiac experts out there - My first Zodiac SIB )


I had it now inflated for about a week and it is holding air very nicely. I still would like to buy a couple of Delrin valves as spares to keep with me just in case. The Zodiac original valves seem to be rare and hard to find (at least in Canada). I am wondering if the widely available ones on Amazon will work? Diameter, thread size, material, etc. could be different. Any ideas?


I mean something like this:

Thanks..

I have an air bed with valves like those you've linked on Amazon. They are similar looking to the Zodiac one but very cheaply made and nor exactly the same dimensions.

The spares you need are easily available here... really no Zodiac dealers or other genuine spares suppliers in Canada??

They are very simple valves and rarely give problems... well they haven't for me and on my current SIB they are on the high pressure floor sealing really well.

I assume you mean this valve type...

Thanks for the replies. The postage charges from international suppliers are usually the issue. For a $20 item you end up paying $50 in postage and other fees. Hence my question. I guess I will keep on looking..
