    Water inlet cutoff valve ???

    Does anyone know where one can buy a water inlet cutoff valve? I'm looking for more of a ballvalve. The kind that goes inline, with a ball in the middle (inside), and a T handle on top for on/off.

    I want to find one that doesn't require a bunch of adapters to connect the 3/4 hose to it. I have seen a few at lowes and home depot, but they are all female threaded. I want one with hose barbs.

    Dont think you will find one. Just get the female threaded one and thread in 2 barbed fittings.

    I will probably be crucified for my solution. I use a plastic reticulation valve, the barbs are part of the valve, takes up less room, wont rust.
    I pressure tested it to 100 psi before install, not really a worry as it is always open, and when closed (towing) it will not see a lot of pressure.
    Not everybody will feel comfortable with this idea, on the other hand the brass syle ball valve is at the other end of the scale and is well overengineered for the application.

    Damn. And I searched mcmaster carr and didn't find it there. I figured if I couldn't find it there, it probably didn't exist.

    I had the exact same one 785 Lugs posted up setup in line with a screen filter. They work really well it's the same recirculating ball concept you find on brass fittings but in plastic.
