as far as i have seen there are not T's that are also ball vales.... and yes you would want one on each side for control

the one leading back to the fuge will ultimately be the last one you tune.... as you get the flow even you will then note how fast the tank is filling.. due to head pressure and such this lower valve will control how much goes up the pipe to the tank.... the more closed the more flow to tank....

one small tip some people over look if i may.. when getting the PVC it cuts easy with a saw and even a hack saw works well .. this said it is much cheaper to buy the 10' sections over the shorter 2 or 3 foot ones... they actuallt only cost 50 cents apart from most hardware dealers... just thought i would share....

Yeah, already thought of this. I actually have one of those PVC cutters and will probably just use that. Another great tip to share with everyone.
