4 way air valve not functioning properly.

aidanfish2002

I bought a 4 way "gang valve" for my air pump which should make it so that I don't have to purchase another air pump but the 4 way valve isn't working. It will only power one air tube and not the rest I have plugged into it. My air pump is a 4 watt 20-100 gallon air pump. Whats the deal here? Why won't it work? Also the air pump and 4 way valve comes from the same brand on Amazon, Pawfly. Shouldn't that make it even more likely to function properly?

Post a pic of how you have it set up.
to test I’d leave it connected the way you have it and leave only one valve open say valve one from left to right. Then close valve one and open valve two, then three, then four. If all four are pushing air your pump is under powered. If not it’s something else. Also you can test by blowing air from your lungs to see if air is pushing through.
