No Flow-Low Flow-Valve

Here at the R&D Center of Youroo Corp. The famous anti-freeze 3 way valve,what a JOKE! The flow rate is super restricted,people who complain about water press-flow rate,ect. look at these Pics. (The valve),(Hole size in valve,copaired to incoming hose size-with drill bits to show comparison). The actual size is (incoming-.469),(Valve-.294). The real Restriction is thru the inside of this valve (1/2 of .294) = .147 now is that a good number? Youroo!!

Do you think it might have been designed that way to limit the consumption of water when boondocking?

No the valve is for pumping anti-freeze into the water system using the on board 12V pump.The way it is made restricts your water flow every time you use your F/W system the rest of the Year. People are on here all the time asking about low pressure & low flow rates,the first thing they are told is (Remove the restrictors) from their (Kit.,shower,and bath faucets. What this valve does is restrict the flow on the suction side of your Pump,not a proper way to control water pressure or flow! Youroo!!

I used my winterizing valve to add fresh water. I don't know what my actual valve looks like as I have a panel in my fiver that has the handles on one side with the actual valve behind it and I haven't looked back there.
