To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ended up purchasing two for gifts. It is a great valve for the money, but it was made in China which for me, is not a plus. The first one I received, looked like the box had set out in the rain and finally made it to the house. Since it was double box it did not harm the item. Some of the items on amazon are plastic this was bronze as stated in the ad.
I bought this as a gift, the recipient was very pleased with it. When it was delivered to me I opened the box to make sure it wasn't damaged and looked reasonably close to the picture on Amazon. I was very impressed with how well it looked, it's weight is appropriate for it's size. Very nice piece.
