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.

Answer: 
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: 
I had no such leakage. Have you tried new/other washers to stop the leakage? Also, maybe you need to use pliers to tighten the connections./

Answer: 
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.

There should be a rubber washer inside the hose connector - 99% of the time it's missing or rotten when it leaks.

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,

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 251 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by So-so part Bought a lot of these over recent years. They are not very well made. Usually don't make it much past one season before they fail. Keep buying them because there are few other options and they aren't too expensive. Failures have varied. The metal split where the metal was joined on one. Most fail because the cheap plastic valves break off at the base (where they screw into the ball valve itself). June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product The valve screw on very well and the shut offs worked well. June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Looks Well-Made But Isn't The part that connects to the hose bib leaked. I first tried replacing the cheap washer it came with, then realized the water was coming out the back of the connector that screws onto the bib. When I took it in to return it, the employee at the return desk commented that this wasn't the first one he's seen come back for that reason. June 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best little item ever invented Just twist on another hose turn its own knob, voila ! June 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This was exactly what I needed! Bought a similar item at a discount hardware store. It leaked from day one. This one works perfectly! You get what you pay for, as they say!!!! June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2.76 in. Metal Y Connector Works great for to the two hoses on water bib job I bought it for. June 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a quality product This connector was poorly manufactured and leaks. I tried several hoses, replaced hose washers, wrapped with Teflon tape to try to help seal the connection, nothing worked. I tried the hoses on another connection and no leaks. I ended up buying a different type of Y connector with the same hoses and it worked flawlessly. While this may be an isolated case, I would not waste the money on it. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by so glad they still make metal! I feel confident this splitter will last longer than the plastic ones. May 28, 2016
