Simply Build It

All ball valves are supplied suitable for high pressure as standard. In fact, it is becoming more difficult to find low pressure ones now as they are now almost never installed.

If you think about it, you must need a high pressure valve because the tank is fed from the mains incoming water. It's only cisterns fed from the header tank that need the low pressure version which is usually only a toilet cistern.
