Waste Diverter Valve
I have one of these valves and it is leaking from the valve stem. I thought there would be a rebuild kit but can't find it. At 64$ maybe I should just throw the old one out and buy a new one?
I installed these in two different boats over the years. Both were sanitation waste discharges. Never had a leak, Current one has been in service two years. Previous one about 10 years.Had not thought about servicing this valve. There is undoubtedly a seal at the shaft/stem. My suggestion - contact Jabsco. Maybe they'll give you a free replacement. Maybe they have a replacement seal or some sort of service kit.Good luck. Working on sanitation systems is never fun.
you should be able to take it apart and replace the O ring
IS THIS SAFE TO USE FOR DRINKING WATER?
I suppose so. It is way oversized for any boat - or for that matter house - water supply I've ever encountered.The applications I've used this valve for have all been waste lines.
my only concern would be if the valve could withstand the pressure of the water on the closed side. typically there is very little pressure to the closed side.
I would not use this for drinking water, you do not need an 1 1/2" port for drinking water. It works well for transferring waste water.
what r the inlett & outlet sizes?

Better than most
I like the Jabsco unit because of the longer tail pieces that make it easier to double clamp the hose connections. Many Y-valves have very stubby hose barbs. Also, the ability to padlock the valve will keep the Coast Guard happy.
