Brewers hardware has a special T type valve that rotates 360 degrees:
This is one of the most unique valves I've come across. The handle and ball rotate 360* in the seat. The passages of the ball itself are drilled through as well as a single perpendicular 'tee' port. This gives you four different flow options. As expected, the valve can flow from A to C or from B to C, but it can also be set to flow from A to B, blocking off C or it can have all 3 ports open, A to B and C. This is a great feature for cleaning and/or draining your system. Made from 304 stainless steel and has 1" tri clover flanges on the connections.
