Ball Valve and Swivel?

Any of you running the ball valve and the Mosmatic Swivel? I have the swivel, game changer relative to twisted hoses and I like the idea of the ball valve but that seems like a lot of hardware on the end of a wand. Interested to know other’s experience using the two combined. Thanks
I did read the other posts but I didn’t see where anyone addressed using the two together i.e. fatigue, breakage due to whatever variables etc.

Im using swivels from Northern Tool

There’s a thread on this already with alot of opinion’s/fact’s. I run the ball valve and swivel. I highly recommend that you do the same, it saves time and money.

Mosmatic and ball valve here. I just copied @Racer’s with a little @Innocentbystander twist by leading with the male end.

Racer put up a good video on his ball valve set up. Give it a search. There are a couple good posts on the topic.

I mounted mine directly on my hose. I figure one less o-ring to start leaking.

Thanks for the replies. I have the swivel and it’s great. I was just a little put off by the extra steel hanging off the back. The direct to the hose idea seems worth a look too. Thanks for the idea and the replies.

I started using it. Works great! Just need to make sure you seal everything well.

Same. Both of mine are on the end of the hoses.

I went a long time without a ball valve until I burnt myself pretty good with hot water. Now I can’t live without it.

Here’s @Racer video and other comments by folks about ball valves as well.
