1. An assembly for controlling eductive dispensing of multiple fluids from a plurality of sources, comprising:
a housing;
a gearing mechanism within said housing, said gearing mechanism comprising:
a control gear;
a plurality of selector gears in communication with said control gear; and
a drive mechanism in communication with said control gear and said plurality of selector gears; and
a plurality of eductors positioned and located outside of said housing, each of said eductors having a selector valve assembly that is rotationally engaged with one of said selector gears such that rotation of said control gear rotates said selector gears, said drive mechanism, and said selector valve assemblies such that the selector valve assemblies complete the same angle of rotation as said control gear, in the same direction as said control gear and said drive mechanism.
