  • Appliance Question

    I know it's mounted on the truck, but if it wasn't per say, this would be considered a water thief, correct? I am referred to the red appliance on the bottom left.

    Yes you could call that three valve a water thief.


    Or you could call it a three wye as well.

      Thanks.

      I was taught a Wye was also one in, two equal out, where as a Water Thief has one in, same size out, plus two smaller.

      Thanks for the link.

        Actual a WYE is an appliance that has one female intake with two or three male outlets.

        A SIAMEASE is an appliance which has two or more Male intakes with one Female discharge.

        A lot of departments use a Siamese on the large steamer suction to get more water to the pump.

          I think it would be some type of Wye, actually. I think a water thief has to have a valve on it. But, I am not sure.

                    Exactly what you see is what it is. aka WYE.

                    It has one 2-1/2 female inlet and two or more male outlets, be it 1 2-1/2 and 2 1/1/2 or any other configuration, it is still considered a WYE.


                    A Three Way Wye to be more précised.
