3-way Ball Valves
 
Just added (4) 3-way ball valves to my system and now I don't have to touch any hoses during my brew. (I used to have to switch hoses around and it was a pain)

Thought I would share if someone has a similar setup or is thinking about a build.

3-way valve on inlet of pump 1.
3-way valve on MLT (bottom port)
3-way valve on inlet of pump 2
3-way valve on outlet of pump 2

If a flow schematic is wanted I can whip something up.

I'm getting ready to do this. Too much sticky sticky wort all over the floor every time I disconnect a hose. Problem is, I need like 8 of them with my system. Unless I get a 2nd pump... :rockin:

Where did you get the valves?

I wouldn't mind seeing a schematic. I'm ready to be done with sticky floors after brew day, but those valves tend to not be cheap. Also I've seen L-type and T-type advertised, and I'm not sure what makes more sense.

I have a bucket in call, 'the wort saver'.

Schematic please! I have tri clovers which are great but a pain in the ass to swap out.
