Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bp Very good for just a few years
Had this dual flex for about 3 years and really liked the ball valve shut off but two problems, one the brass threaded nipple doesn't seem right and some hoses will pop off as if the threads were too short. Yesterday a fine leak was detected right where the end of the coil spring gouges into the brass nipple, its impossible to fix so the entire dual flex connector has to be replaced and now I'm worried from the reviews here that the replacement isn't going to last for long.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gardenforfood looks good but didn't last and leaked
I bought this because it had nice large knobs to shut the water off/on. It was a bit more expensive than the brass melnor competitor but it looked like a better product. After only about 10 days it started leaking from the neck and there was no way to fix that. Appears that area is all plastic and no washer is going to fix a leak in the plastic housing. Like most things nowadays it is a poor design and workmanship. Since I leave the water spigot on in this configuration, I wasted a lot of water before I realized it was leaking

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AGee Not as expected
I thought this would last at least a year and unfortunately it did not. I have one hose that is constantly hooked up and left the second spicket available for different uses. The second spicket began to loose the ability to turn off. It got very frustrating to find the particular sweet spot to stop water from dripping. Kinda acceptable but now the other spicket is dripping. Not worth the money. Wish I would have read the reviews first.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arktk01 Best hose splitter I have purchased
Immediately put this to use on a volunteer project where three high powered pressure washers were feed from this unit. Its size and easy controls made it a snap to use.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Norm Defective Product
This product is defective. After short use the knobs don't turn properly and the connection leaks. It is impossible to tighten screws and fix it.

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.
