is the tubing in Lowes that is under where you get the needle valve co2 resistant? They had two different types of tubing one was clear and one was white and I believe they were made with two different ingredients/.

The one you want to get is the one that says on the tubing itself "Do not use for Ice Maker". It is printed every 4 inches or so of the clear tubing outer layer. The tubing should be clear also and it's slightly a little bigger than the standardize aquarium air pump tubing that they use. I don't remember the size.

The part number should be A41 with a pink strip at the top of the package. It is a brass compression needle valve.

I got the a-42 because I needed a fitting on both sides since this valve was just going to be going in-line and not on a solinoid of any sort. But the other one that you guys listed costs 9.99

But it didnt work splitting my co2 from my other tank, it didnt build up enough pressure to operate the other side.

I wonder if the LF at the end of the model number means anything, I bought many and returned many none had LF on them.

.... Just realized that LF could mean Lead Free.....

Correct, that's what it stands for. I assumed all of them sold at every Homedepot within the USA would say LF on it.

Didn't know they had some sold without the LF.

I believe it's California law that products are lead free, everywhere else that doesn't have that law I don't think they carry Lead Free version.
