Answer: 
Most hoses have standard/universal couplings, regardless of the size of the actual hose. This Y Connector should fit your hose.

Answer: 
No need to purchase a new hose - 1/2", 3/4" and 5/8" hose all use standard couplings so they will connect to the same hose end item.

Answer: 
Most garden hoses (if not all) have a standard size connector. If your hose connects to your hose spigots, it will attach to this y- fitting.

The hose diameter doesn't matter. The connectors should all be standard hose connections. I have used 1/2" and 3/4" hoses.

Answer: 
The hose diameter does not matter. The hose fittings are standard and should fit this regardless of the hose diameter.But I would suggest buying a cheaper, silver colored version of this. This brass splitter cell apart in about 1 year in my garden.

Answer: 
Could be thread quality poor in connector or hose. Use white plumbing tape to wrap around spigot end to make a tighter fix. Maybe use a wrench to tighten. Unfortunately this will make it impractical to remove and re-attach.

I use thread sealing tape (or plumbers tape). I have a couple of Y connectors as well as a 4 way connector and every one that I've ever had leaked. The tape fixes that.

I guess you could, but if you are using a regular garden hose, then you would not be able to attach anything to them unless you change the end of your hose

Answer: 
I believe the valves would be fine running either way, however the only issue you might have is the male/female ends. The main stem is a female connector that screws onto the spigot. The two other stems with the valves are male connectors and hoses need to be attached to them. If that works for your setup it should be just fine to use in reverse.

Answer: 
Technically you probably could but based on the type of connections on the ends and the way the hoses would generally connect, it typically lends itself to a 1 in/2 out configuration.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting Melnor regarding the Metal 2-Way Hose Valve. The valve is not designed to operate with the flow of water coming in the two outlets and out the inlet. Using the 2-Way in this manner can result in leakage.

Answer: 
Hi Esi,
I suppose it is possible to accomplish what you are asking it to do. Water will flow both ways through this valve.
There is another Y-Mixer available that may work better. Find it here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-Y-Mixer-Washing-Machine-Hose-HRBFIL02EB/206170024
Thank you for asking,

Answer: 
I guess, it will work. Just double check the thread on your washer inlet - usually it's a hose thread. But I would not recommend this connector. It fell apatr on me in about a year. If your washers are insuide the house, you are risking having a major flood one day.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 289 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK but could be better I find that afer 2 seasons, you'll need to get a new one. I do remove them at the end of season, however: 1) the plastic housing around the valve cracks and falls off 2) the threads will corrode up if you have hard water 3) turning the valve on-off becomes an issue after a few months of service. I've had to resort to leaving them open and putting a cut-off valve after the Y to turn off the connections. So while they do work, they could be better designed or be made of better materials. However the zinc or plastic Y connectors are not any better August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product. I got exactly what I expected from this product!!! August 23, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to use While this a well built product and something I felt I had to have vs the plastic one, the valve levers are very hard to tur off and on using ones fingers. Pliers is the only way we can do it. Over a period of time the neoprene covers on the levers crack and come loose or off. I really hate to recommend this because of the lever problem they sure beat the plastic version. August 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worth Product is worth it's money in gold. You can't go wrong better then plastic. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metal Y Connector More reliable than the Plastic Y Connector that leaks and breaks easily. Costs a little more, but it is worth it. August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor construction One of the threaded male ends came unscrewed and blew out the gasket. I don't have any great ways to remove the male threaded end from my garden hose that won't damage the threads nor do I have a great way to thread it back on without damaging the garden hose threads... I also don't have another gasket to replace the one that was torn. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metal Y Connector will water both garden beds at the same time I am going on vacation and asked a neighbor to water my garden. This Y Connector attached easily and works great. Both garden boxes get watered at the same time. August 10, 2016
