3-way ball valves, 1/4 NPT

Unread postAuthor: Leonard » Sat Aug 09, 2008 3:51 pm

I am looking for those desperatly. Cant find any in homedepot or any similar store around here (Canada) and online, they all seem incredibly expensive for a (relatively) simple plumber part.

Thanks for your help.

It's just a thing with 3 way ball valves, you won't find them cheap.

Is 20 bucks a good price for a 3 way 1/4 FNPT?

That's relatively cheap. Be expected to pay $50 in other places, such as the U-bloody-K.

What do you need the valve for? Pressure? Little details like that make a huge difference in the price.

If this is for a fuel meter then you can use a valve rated for fairly low pressure. You can get plastic threeway valves for pretty cheap.

I would need it for very high pressure (500 PSI) but im also considering this idea (shameless publicity for another thread) :
