This "Y" shut-off valve will allow you to run two water hoses from a single outdoor faucet at the same time. Now you don't have to bother disconnecting your entire sprinkler system or soaker hose layout when you need to connect another hose, whether it's the flower bed that you need to water for a few minutes or you need more time filling up a kid's pool. A plastic rim on the female end of the valve and six grooves notched on its circumference create a convenient grip that allows for tighter connection to the spigot without a wrench. Each male end of this brass 2-way garden hose valve features an on/off valve to help you easily distribute water flow and pressure the way you want. The valve is made with corrosion-free metal to ensure durable construction that will last for years.
