For the chosen few who have been gifted with organizational expertise, keeping a garage clean enough to house vehicles in is easy. But for the rest of us, it is a real challenge. There is just too much stuff cluttering up our homes, so we put it in the garage to figure out later.

PVC is the perfect material to use for garage organization as it is lightweight, easy to find, strong, and inexpensive.

    Despite seeming like a small detail, a valve's O-ring material is very important. The material can dictate the temperature tolerance of a seal. It can also give the seal certain chemical resistances, with some types of rubber being compatible with difference fluids. Two common materials for true union ball valves are Viton and EPDM.

    Viton (shown in image on the right) is a synthetic rubber with a high chemical and temperature resistance. EPDM, which stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer, has its own set of properties that make it an extremely popular O-ring material. When comparing Viton vs. EPDM, several factors must be considered: temperature tolerance, chemical compatibility, and cost. Continue reading for the full comparison.
