Come to think about it, It may restrict flow because of its Y shape the liquid would have to abruptly turn 270 Degrees to one side

If it's just for connecting a fillport, or joining a parallel section of the loop, then it is fine.

What are you using it for?

.............. I don't know about anybody else but I thought generally "T" and "Y" are used in "one in - two out" configuration....or 2 into 1

So where the hell is this ABRUPT 270º turn....

With a "T" there is an UBER-ABRUPT 90º turn...

With a "Y" there is a lazy 45º turn....and less restriction.

I can see it now....you going never mind....

Here's my "Y" fitting in my loop. It works just fine. (All the air bubbles are there 'cause I was bleeding it at the time)

I see what you all mean, I was trying to say that it would be a 270º turn if the fill port was at the base of the Y
