- Chrome Faucet Diverter Valve
Diverter Valves are used to attach RO systems to most kitchen sink faucets. They allow RO units to remain connected to the sink. Simply turn the diverter valve lever to operate the RO unit and push back to use the sink faucet. This item is designed for use with our saltwater aquarium line of RO systems.
Diverter valves are great when you want to leave your RO unit plumbed in. They fit most standard faucets and can be adapted using an adapter ring (not included) if an oddball faucet is encountered.
Faucet Connection - 55/64 - 27
RO Tube Connection - 1/4" Compression
Not recommending, but purchasing a second time By Vince on 10/29/2019Vince wouldn't recommend this product to a friendTrying to install in my spare bathroom closest to my fish room. Upon partial install, unit leaked. I attempted to snug, no joy. I removed unit and adapter. The adapter was stuck in the unit. I very cautiously had to remove the adapter via a pair of pipe pilers, careful not to damage unit, or ding the threads of the adapter. The unit ring was bent despite my best efforts to be cautious. Now the unit won’t accept the adapter and is there fore useless to me.

Quick, easy, and looks great too! By K-pow on 6/19/2015K-pow would recommend this product to a friendThis product works as advertised. The chrome looks great and no leaks from the valve or 1/4" outlet. I have a slight drip coming from the seam between the diverter and aerator but it can most likely be fixed by cranking down on it with a wrench (I haven't yet because I'm afraid of scratching the chrome or damaging the O-ring). Overall I highly recommend this for apartment dwellers or anyone who doesn't want to tinker with their plumbing.
Side note: if you turn on the diverter without a hose attached, it will shoot water a surprisingly long way. This can be used as a great prank on unsuspecting guests!
convenient and quality product By dw on 3/23/2015dw would recommend this product to a friendadded convenience in making RO water with a simple switch. Avoided applying teflon tape each time in the past.

Quality piece By Doug H on 12/2/2014Doug H would recommend this product to a friendI was very happy with the price, fast shipping, and quality of the part. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because the spout was different than what is pictured. The picture shows a 1/4" barb. The diverter comes with a compression fitting for 1/8" line. It is actually a better fitting than the barb in most cases. But it forced me to re-think my design. Still - very nice piece and very happy with it.

Absolutely perfect By Zach on 9/16/2014Zach would recommend this product to a friendWas a little nervous about this purchase, but no shops near me had one. Made the leap ordered one and it came super fast! Felt real and not cheap fit like a glove sealed good no leaks. Already made 15 gallons and love it. Easy to use and set up.
It workd By Pete on 6/19/2014Pete would recommend this product to a friendIt works. Nuff said.
Quick and easy to setup and use without busting out the tools By DeWalt-Reefer on 6/6/2014DeWalt-Reefer would recommend this product to a friendIt's simple to use and install. Only issue is if you need an adapter to make it fit your faucet. I needed one; simple fix, just take your aerator and this part to Lowes or HD and find the correct adapter.
What is the O .D. size for the faucet connection ? Thanks,George
Thanks for the question, and if you have any others just let us know.
What is the barb size on this item
The faucet diverted is for the 1/4" tubing that comes with our RO/DI units.
I have a question on the chrome faucet diverter valve; can the hard tubing be plugged to the connector on this valve? because from the type of connector looks like a slip fit but more for a soft tubing and i am affraid the hard 1/4" tubing will not be secure with the water pressure? please let me know.
Yes it will work correctly. The fitting included with the RO/DI unit is designed to be used with the RO tubing that comes with the unit.
