Default Electric 3 way ball valve???

I am looking for a 12 volt electric 3 way ball valve to switch the exhaust water dumps from through the transom to fill a ballast tank? Anyone know of where I can find these? Thanks, Dave

Do a search for Ball valves they have air operated ones You could use a silent choice compressor
and also 110 volt

Lightbulb 3 Way Valve

Wardey, are you needing a valve that has three(3) ports? If so, this acually would be called a two(2)-way valve, believe it or not. Hope this helps.

You're most likely going to find 24VDC electric or pneumatic valves. Other than line voltage, that's what the industrial standard. That is, unless someone makes an application-specific one.

Try Grainger.

It could be either- you have to specify where the valve goes in its neutral position.

You need to be able to switch from the exhaust water dumping out through the transom to the exhaust water dumping into the balast tank to fill the tank. Then you use a pump to pump out the balast tank. Thanks all, Dave
