This three-way valve makes it super easy to flush and winterize your engine without the need to remove any coolant hoses. Fight engine corrosion and extend the life of your engine's cooling system with a periodic fresh water flush. Winterize without fuss. No need to change out engine hoses or add additional pumps and equipment.
To winterize your cooling system, just connect a short garden hose and set the valve handle to the flush position (as pictured). Run the engine briefly to suck your winterizing solution from a container into the engine. When done, switch the valve to the closed position and remove the garden hose. The third (open) position allows raw water into the engine for engine cooling.
Permanently plumb your engine to the horizontal barb. Use the garden hose connection for fresh water flush or antifreeze winterization.
