Default Fresh Water Fill-Valve

The valve that opens to allow fresh water to fill the tank has failed in the open position. Does anyone have a source?

I have had no luck finding a replacement valve, and have been using a pair of Vise-Grips to pinch the hose.

Has anyone replaced the valve at all?

Chris - is it not a sporlan valve?
I rebuilt the one in my PT in about 20 minutes and maybe $25. The kit was readily available.
OR
Can you just buy a normally closed 12V solenoid valve?
I used one for my quickhot loop which dumps water at the rear sink / shower back to the water tank. It was on amazon for $30 or so and made of brass.
It had pipe fittings to which I connected pex adapters.

Something like this.

Mine has worked flawlessly .... knock on wood.
I see one star ratings where folks say DOA but also some who used for fuel. Assume some poor reviews are those who didn’t use it properly.
I added a ball valve in case it fails. (Leaks through valve)

I am not sure of the manufacturer, I will get up in there and take a look today. rebuilding might be the best option.
