Flow-Rite’s System 2 Marine Control Valve is an efficient and reliable solution for controlling fluid flow in marine applications. This valve is designed to allow for the precise regulation of water flow, making it ideal for use in livewell, ballast, and baitwell systems. It features a durable and corrosion-resistant construction, made from high-quality materials to withstand the harsh marine environment.
The System 2 Marine Control Valve is designed with a 3/4″” Qwik-Lok socket for easy installation and maintenance. It comes with a unique handle that provides a comfortable and secure grip, allowing for easy operation of the valve. The handle also incorporates a locking mechanism that prevents accidental opening or closing of the valve.
The V2 is our reversible check valve that allows a single pump to perform the basic livewell functions necessary to keep your catch alive in a passive or automatic manner. By mounting the pump to the valve body, the operator only has to decide whether he wants his livewell functioning or empty. When the first fish is caught, place the valve in the “AUTO” position and turn on the pump. When the boat is off plane the pump will recirculate and aerate the livewell water and simultaneously blend in a portion of fresh lake water. Used livewell water is expelled out the overflow as fresh water enters to prevent any ammonia build up.
When the boat is put on plane, the valve’s check flapper will prevent water loss out the drain, and allow the pump to continue its re-circulation duties. Any water lost out the overflow while running on plane is automatically made up when the boat is brought off plane at the next fishing location. All this is accomplished without any operator assistance.
To empty, simply turn off the pump and move the valve to the “EMPTY” position for gravity draining.
Overall, the System 2 Marine Control Valve from Flow-Rite is an excellent choice for marine applications that require precise fluid flow control. Its durable construction, simple design, and ease of use make it a reliable and cost-effective solution for any boating enthusiast.

Only specific PEF for higher profile walleye and bay boats where the livewell overflow is 8″-12″ above Lake level. If it it’s more than 12″ use the V4 valve. PEF is not generally required for low profile bass boats.
While off plane, in the Auto position, water enters the valve from both the livewell drain and the transom thru-hull. As the water level in the livewell increases so does the pressure on the transom check feature of the valve, reducing the ration of fresh to recirculated water. When this pressure is too great, PEF insures that enough fresh water is added to force the upper used water out.
