Yeah, I don't use check valves either.

Keep in mind that getting air to your filter depends on length of hose and how deep the filter is in the water, too. (You can actually cheat a little if there is not enough air pressure on a specific filter to make bubbles, by moving it higher in the tank. )

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!
