3 way valve needed

Has anyone seen a valve like this? Need to replace due to breakage. Only has a patent number on it. No other means of identification.

Thanks for any input
Ken

Thanks John. I also looked up the patent number but didn’t find that. Looks like I should be able to find what I need there.��

Its commonly used as a diversion valve for watermakers. Available with a 1/2" or 1/4" pipe thread.

Ah, you’re a good man Charlie Brown...I mean SailormanTx�� Thank you. I guess, since I have broken 2 of them, I might want to try metal. The water maker is what I’m using it for.
Thanks for your reply.
