Orientation of one way check valve

Can a check valve be mounted vertically? or should it be mounted horizontally?

Thanks

Jon

Yes if it is made to work that way.

Not really if this is for potable water protection.


Post a photo.

A swing check cannot have the output side lower than the input side.

A spring check can be mounted in any orientation.
