      Comments about Diverter Valve:

      I have been using it for three months now and I think it is great. I was a little scared to buy it because of the reviews, but it works perfectly so far. I have a fresh water system, so maybe that will eliminate the "salt problems" that others are having. Either way, it is solid and works well.

      Handle Broke Off

      Pros

      • Easy To Use

      Cons

      • Flimsy

      Best Uses

        Comments about Diverter Valve:

        Original equipment on my Beneteau. The handle broke off after 12 years. Although that seems like a long time, the handle is plastic and the connection to the valve could be a lot sturdier. I am buying a new one only because I just want to remove and replace the old unit.
        By the way, to minimize salt buildup, I have read recommendations for flushing the holding system periodically with white vinegar.

        A good design, poorly engineered.

        By Tim

        from Santa Cruz

        About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

        Pros

        • Easy to disassemble
        • Easy To Install
        • Flexible architecture

        Cons

        • Flimsy
        • Seals are easily damaged

        Best Uses

          Comments about Diverter Valve:

          The valve seal is easily torn by accumulated salt build-up (think "#1"). The handle axel is wimpy and easy to break during normal use, especially when there is internal salt build-up.
          I don't enjoy overhauling waste systems, and so would appreciate if more design emphasis was placed on creating a robust, self-cleaning action.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Diverter Valve:

            I like the holes to lock it so that it can't be changed, required by some agencies. In time it became difficult to operate and I broke the handle.

            Installed two of these last year in head system. I love them! Easy to install, take apart when needed, and haven't once clogged. Angled ports are a definite plus. Only con would be finding replacement parts.

            from Undisclosed

            I tryed to turn it from holding tank to over the side and the part of the ball valve that goes into the handle broke. It should be made out of stainless steel.
