Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Foo Shut-off valves do not last
Purchased one of these and the shut-off valves will at best last a year under normal use. The valves will begin to not fully shut-off water flow when closed after a couple months. Then they will eventually under repeated use strip out and not stop water flow at all. Disappointing as other than the cheap plastic shutoff valves the rest of the construction seems to be of well made materials.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YankeeTraveler was a great piece
I have had one of these on my spigot for 5 or 6 years. I have never removed it winter or summer. I have used the valves at least a few times every month, some times a few times a day. I was going to buy another on Amazon when I needed to replace my anti-siphon but they do not carry it. Nothing wrong with the one I have now except the external hose supports are rusting. I will buy another from Home Depot and hope they are the same quality they were 5 years ago.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linda Lasts several years for me
I had timers attached to each valve. It stood up to pressure of water being on for 12-48 hours at a time with timer valves turning on and off. The shut off on my manual timer has a tendency to leak, but I needed to turn the water on for the automatic timer to run during my required watering hours. (We're on strict water restrictions) I simply closed the Nelson Y valve to the manual timer, turned the water on and the automatic timer would run 12 hours later. The Nelson full flow Y connector lasted about 3 years. Eventually the male fittings wore out, due to the torque that my timers applied to the Y connector. The valves still worked, however.
After it wore out, I replaced it with a regular rigid plastic Y connectors that I had around the house, but they leak at the connections and one high flow plastic literally fell apart due to my water pressure. So, I simply purchased a new Nelson full flow. The Nelson full flow is flexible and durable.

Didn't last but a couple of months before I found water shooting out of the handle for one of the ball valves. Had 2 sprinkler timers connected. Never used the shut off valves. Stored inside during winter months. Will see if Home Depot will refund my money. Definitely dont want another one.

I purchased two of these late last summer. One attached to a spigot inside, another attached to a spigot outside. Each of these had the ball valve get stuck on one side within a year. i.e. Turning the valve did nothing. Either a spectacular coincidence or the construction is poor. Neither got that much use.

The plastic valve handles broke off after a year of light use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZHawg Strength AND flexibility!
I use drip systems for watering my gardens and these require a filter here, due to minerals in our well water. These filters cause most Y-fittings to break, but not these Dual Flex Connect fittings! I have used one for years, now and now I will replace another solid Y-fitting with this one!
With the flexibility of each hose, the force applied to the hose spigot is greatly reduced, thereby limiting stress breakage of the faucet. Plus the ability to stop or limit the amount of water flowing to each hose is wonderful; the shut-off position will really shut off the water flow.
If you garden with multiple hoses off one faucet, get one of these!
