Needed a cheap setup to agitate the surface of my water and this was part of it.
It DOES feel cheap when you open the package. (Plastic air flow controllers, plastic casing) It is a TAD tricky to balance the air flow but only took me 5 minutes to get a perfect 50/50 balance from my 2 gang fitting.
Works great for my little 10 gallon tank!
Pros: quiet

I just bought this Gang Valve today and it works great!! I had no problems installing it or adjusting the air flow. I'm not sure why others are having issues but this was a quick and easy install.
Pros: easy to install, powerful, quiet, lots of bubbles

I bought the 3 gang valve to replace an all plastic valve I had bought at a competitor. (the all plastic valve did not seem to cut off air flow totally which was what I was looking for)
I have a rather intense setup in my 10 gallon tank, running a 17 inch LED bubble wand, an airstone placed under some coral, and one of those waterwheel houses. All powered by a Whisper 20 Air Pump. I thought I could tee it all and just run it all at the same pressure but as I quickly found out, the air will always take the path of least resistance which was the waterwheel. So I got a 3 gang regulator and still had the same problem, air running to the waterwheel. Then I bought this regulator from PetSmart. It worked great. Allowing me to shut off air flow to the waterwheel to get the other effects working correctly, then slowly turning the waterwheel on till it just starts to work. Its great and does what I need it to do.
It IS hard to get just right. If you're short on patience I recommend taking a break and getting back to it later. But this is not entirely a flaw with the product as much as its just a difficulty we all have with understanding the complexities of air flow! :)
Pros: powerful, lots of bubbles
Cons: Hard to Install

what a waste of $, time and energy. no matter what I did it wouldnt work. They shouldn't have such deceitful products on the shelf. Now I have a cut tube and no air coming out. That means going driving back to the store to return the piece of garbage.

not sure as to why this product has gotten bad reviews, but it works perfectly for me. i currently use the 3-way valve in my 20 gallon high tank. controls the how much flow i want. couldn't really ask for anything more. it works as advertised.
when using a gang valve i always tend to use an air pump that is rated higher than what im currently using. though my tank is a 20 gallon, i use a pump that is rated for a 60 gallon tank.
Pros: easy to install

Bought two of these; neither worked. I use a 60 gallon air pump on my 20 gallon tank, so I was supplying more than enough air flow, yet only one valve would work on each gang. Useless product & a waste of my time to return it. If you want to give it a try, test it out before cutting your airline tubes; I wasted tubing by not testing first.
Cons: No Bubbles
