high pressure co2 lines/check valves

hi guys, i'm running a UP atomizer. it seems to be working pretty well, but i bought a cheap check valve at the pet store and i'm getting a drip, even with zip ties on it for clamps. i'm running 40 psi line pressure to the atomizer. once the controller shuts it down i get water forced to the check valve from the water pressure coming out of my filter.

so i need better stuff so i don't have leaks. i seem to remember seeing a brass check valve somewhere. do i need to change line? i'm running the line given with my milwaukee regulator.

also, when my controller kicks on i get such a release in gas it blows the water out of my bubbler into the co2 line and empties it out over a short period. how do i fix that?
