Brass Tee with back flow preventer

In need of a Brass T, 1/2m on all sides, with a back flow. Does anybody know where one can be purchased. Will take plastic if I have 2.

In my 40 years of plumbing, i have never seen a "T" with male threads on all 3 ends, but, maybe at Menards or HomeDepot in the plumbing Dept in the Brass Fitting section, you might find one or be able to make one up and put a backflow preventer on one end. Good luck

RVs parts can be a rare bird. I agree. They use stuff that is very hard to find out here.

If you can't find it, how bout a std female tee w/ 3 close nipples add your check space permitting, assuming yor're working with plastic or Pex piping.

Vince - That might work. Great suggestion. Need to find one with a check valve in it. 1/2 F threads for the plastic fittings in an RV.

Maybe you could use two of these with a T to make your own.
