I have a water pipe (unpumped) from a stream in to my shed that houses a water tank. I require a continuous flow of water along pipe A in the photo. At the tee junction water can also be fed in to the tank, pipe B.

I want Pipe A to run continuously (it heads straight in to another stream) but if the water tank calls for water (float valve) then the water will divert to Pipe B, or run through both Pipe A and Pipe B.

The current set up in the photo doesn't work in this way. With the continuous flow along Pipe A no water is heading down Pipe B when there is demand from the tank.

Can anyone suggest how to fix this - either a tweak or major reconfiguration?

Thanks
