Perfect. The only valve I can find has 1/4" male pipe threading x 1/4" quick connect fitting. So I'll need to find a 1/4" OD female x 1/4" FIP piece to connect the ball valve to the tee.

I completely see what you are saying now with the valve that you pictured. That would be great.. except I need separate valve control for the RO/DI line. I "make" about 20 gallons of RO/DI water...

Yes, that is exactly what I have. Okay, so it's 1/2" pipe coming up out of the floor. Why do I need to remove the cold valve though? I can put whatever I get on top of the valve. I need a tee...

I don't know what size the pipe is that is coming out of the floor. All I know is that the 3/8" nut screws onto the male end of it to a water tight seal.
