Default Help me find a solenoid

So I just received a duck call
Now... Here is what I want to do - I want to have a switch which would let me select where I want air from my bypass valve go to (back into intake or into duck call) so I can turn on my duck call when I want to. I imagine I need a double-exit solenoid (1 inlet, 2 outlets) which can withstand 12-14psi and should have about 1" OD on fittings (both, inlet and outlets).

Anyone has any idea where I can buy one like that?

Correction: I need high-pressure airflow switch with either 5/8" or 1" OD.

I can't believe I'm actually aiding and abetting a duck call BOV...

Visit the lawn irrigation aisle at Home Depot or Lowes. They have electric water valves intended for zone-switching sprinkler systems. People have used these to build potato guns, so I'm sure they can handle the pressure on an intake tract.

I think Go Fast Bits sells a BOV that is electronically switchable for two different settings... VTA and recirc... I think... think think think... maybe, I'm sofa king lazy so I'm not going to google it.

sprinkler system valves are 12V operated I think... and they are 7/8" in/out.
