I just turn off the water supply spigot or water pump switch.

I suppose you're referring to me saying I check my black tank level by looking down into the tank and the flowing water hinders me getting a good look,..... if that is what your post is in response to, then yes, I could do as you say,.....

but its much simpler now to use the valve to shut off that flow for just a minute while I look into the tank,..... than it is, to be 10:00pm after my shower and I want to know if I need to dump the tank tomorrow and I have to get dressed, go outside w/flashlight, turn off the city water, come back into the bathroom, look at the tank level, go back outside w/flashlight and turn the city water back on,..... whew, I"m tired typing, much less having to do all that,.... its just easier now,......

but that is only one advantage of having that valve, there are two more that I mentioned before,.....1) if the toilet valve itself, ever starts leaking, that valve can isolate it without having to stop water usage from the whole trailer,... plus another advantage is, 2) it can also be helpful when dry camping if there is ever a need to be extremely restrictive on all water usage, with it you have complete control over the amount of water the toilet will use in that situation,
