transfer valves


trying (unsuccessfully) to find a 3 way transfer valve with 3/4" inlet and for one outlet, the other outlet could be 1/2" or whatever. As an extra problem, the valve must have at least 1 !/2" mounting threads.

Using this on a whirlpool tub already plumed with 3/4" copper as is the house.
Will cut into line (with temp already set) to faucet that I am unable to get to as it is on the other side of the tub.

thanks

turn supplies into 1/2 to go to 3 way diverter that is if you are going to use it for shower heads since they all are regulated at 1.5 g.p.m. 1/2 line is more then enough

To Joe and Jay.

Thanks for the responses. Plumbers Surplus does not have this. Was trying to use the 3/4" outlet for filling a Jacuzzi tub faucet and do not wish to reduce the flow to the faucet by reducing the size of the line.

May have to rethink and go with two 1/2" inch outlet into the 3/4" line and switch to a 3 outlet transfer valve !!

What's wrong with just getting a 3/4" transfer valve and reducing the line for the shower down to 1/2"



Nevermind, I read it 2 more times and it made sense.


I don't think you're going to find one. There's a reason the inlet is sized larger than the outlets, so that if you want to use both at once, the flow rate will keep up.

ok so why not use 3/4 tub diverter with a t that then reduces to 1/2 to got to shower diverter or shower head.
other option just t off of 3/4 supplies leave tub fill faucet in place "that is if it is a true 3/4 tub valve" and then put a shower valve above it for shower. i have seen this often in houses built in the 70's to control valves one for tub down low and one for shower around 48 " high
