Just installed this on my new RO DI... it's not working By Stephen on 9/30/2015
Stephen would recommend this product to a friend
I may be doing something wrong, but it's seeming more that I have a faulty unit... water will only come out the bottom... first thought the DI was the problem, but tested the main line of the "tee" by disconnecting it from the DI and have the same problem. Would like to know if anyone else came across this and if there's something I need to do differently. Thanks... I gave it a three because I had to pick a star... hope to be saying five stars once I figure this out.

I got this to work with my RODI system, to switch between drinking and tank water. It is well built and easy to install. I have no doubt this will last a long time.
Great Valve For Diverting RO Line By Jon on 7/20/2015
Jon would recommend this product to a friend
I mainly got this valve to divert product water line when flushing the system instead of burning through resin when flushing the system. If you going to do the same as I did I would recommend by an RO tube divider to connect your waste water with the diverted product line so when flushing the system there isn't two separate lines being used and it's a lot more neat and tidy.

got this for an rodi system to switch between ro water for drinking and di water for fish tank works great no flow back between directions and no need for check valves like you would need for a standard valve

I used this valve to divert the first few minutes of RO water to waste to help save my DI resin. Very simple to install and works perfectly.

Great quality product. I bought this when I changed out my media in my RODI unit. Instructions that came with the new membrane said to discard the first hour of product water. I didn't want to throw away the 60 gallons or more of the water I'd already made, so I added this little tap. Now, I use it for a lot of things. Whenever I just need a little RODI, I switch the valve and I have a controllable flow. Works great!

Well Built, Easy to Use By Linda P on 3/17/2015

It's made of sturdy plastic that I expect to hold up for quite a while. Better than I've seen in local stores. Easy to use. Just cut the water line squarely and push in then pull backwards a bit to make it grip the hose. Flip the toggle to have it run through whichever side you need. It allows me to fill my storage tank or my sump.
Does the trick for me By StarFishMan on 3/2/2015

This allows me to easily throw the RO/DI water out to a 1 gallon milk container to be used for drinking water. Without having to swap anything. Just works and comes in very handy. I can think of several ways to use these.

Very well built and quite secure. Used it as many others do and use it to divert the ro flush away from my di resin.
Great valve to save DI resin By Justin on 1/22/2015
Justin would recommend this product to a friend
I bought this to get rid of the TDS creep on my DI resin and avoid any backflush from getting to the resin.
This is a very high quality valve and really when you think about you are getting a 3 way valve for $20. The big box store single valve cost close to 10 and is not nearly as nice and much more prone to leakage this this one. Thinking about adding a second to be able to fill to water tanks rather than pumping from one to the other. Well worth the money.
Great Product By Romain on 12/14/2014

I use this on the water line after the RO canisters before it gets to the DI section to fill my homes drinking water. Super easy to install(gotta love push connects) and works great I agree a little pricey but saves a lot of time so well worth it.
Super Useful By sazoram on 10/3/2014
sazoram would recommend this product to a friend
I use this to keep my RODI unit pumping out the pure H20 while I can control the output to two repositories. Would otherwise require two ball valves and a Tee. In addition, two ball valves would run the risk of shutting off the continuous supply which would cause my RODI to cycle.
A 'must have' item By Sportfish on 4/25/2014
Sportfish would recommend this product to a friend
BRS has the best prices on RO/DI machines and I have their 5 Stage 75 gallon/day system. I LOVE it. I of course got it for the FOWLER tank I have - it does not take long to get tired of going to a 'storefront' FO/DI machine and lugging 5 gallon jugs around. I then started using the water for drinking and some special plants. But certainly the plants don't need DI water, and while I'm not convinced of it, I've read 'people' should not drink DI water (I need to keep researching this). So the solution is to install this valve in between the RO filter (my State 4), and the DI filter (my Stage 5). It took seconds to do and now I can - with a simple twist - generate either FO/DI water, or, just exceptional filtered RO water - saving / extending the life of the resin significantly. And you can look all you want, but even at what seems an expensive $19+, BRS has the best price on the valve. And you can try using shut-offs and "Y" fittings that appear to be a cheaper solution, but in the end and for a couple extra bucks, you get this 3-way, have a very 'clean' installation, and you're done. BRS sends quite a lot of hardware - expensive hardware - with their systems, and it is appreciated. But for me, a lot of it was not needed and inapplicable. I would respectfully suggest that BRS omit some of the 'other' hardware - much of which many will never need/use - and instead include one of these 3-way valves which I am certain EVERYONE will need and use.
Well worth the price By David on 1/14/2014

It seems like a lot to spend on such a small bit of plastic valve, but when you get it in your hands the high build quality is obvious. Solid feel and overall larger than I'd expected.
Push to Connect.....and Viola! By Tommy Gee on 12/30/2013
Tommy Gee would recommend this product to a friend
I purchased this John Guest "push to connect" 3-way ball valve for two reasons:
1.) to direct my start-up RO water flow away from my DI filter (to prolong the resins useful lifetime).
2.) to avoid contaminating my DI filter when I back-flush my RO membranes
Does it work?
Like a charm! Now I can be assured that the inflow of RO water to my DI filter will help me achieve my goal of increasing the life of my (more expensive) resin.
Expensive but a must have By BobbyT on 12/8/2013
BobbyT would recommend this product to a friend
I use it to shut off my DI canisters when I'm flushing the system.
That small amount of TDS being pushed through the DI, can destroy the resin pretty quickly. It's best to shut it of
Excellent Valve that works as intended By DrewHase7 on 8/13/2013
DrewHase7 would recommend this product to a friend
I added this in between my RO tank and my DI cylinder. I use this to make a bit of RODI water when i need it for my tank, but can shut off the DI unit when i want to fill up my drinking water tank for normal use.
This allows me to not need a check valve, as I will rarely ever need to be making DI and drinking water at the same time. No leaks.
Overview of Diverter Ball valve By PJ on 7/5/2013

Works as its suppose too.Make sure when you install this valve that
the single input is where you connect to your water line.And the
two inputs are your diverters.No leaks.As of yet!These push in valves
are simple to use.
Extra Water Tap By Richard on 4/19/2013
Richard would recommend this product to a friend
Added this valve to the output of the carbon filters, but before RO, so I can easily obtain clean drinking water with out using the DI. Very easy to modify the system and install this valve. Don't know what people did before this type of valve was used. No leaks and easy to turn with any water pressure.

I use this right before my DI cartridge so I can pull drinking water from my RO to refill my bottled water.
Agree its pricey, but saves me a lot of time and mess disconnecting RO lines.
Pricey but worth it for the long term benefits! By William on 10/31/2012
William would recommend this product to a friend
When I saw that I was passing over 100 TDS water through my DI cartridge the first few minutes of usage this valve was a no brainer. $20 might be hard to swallow at first but the long term value can't be beat to avoid TDS creep and how it will exhaust your DI resin. This is a must have for your RO/DI unit.
