Decent Check Valve?


Does anyone have a decent check valve you can just buy at your lfs? I've been through at least 6 of those $3 at petsmart over the last 2 months. The ones I keep losing are between the bubble counter and the regulator.

Hi jan db,

I have used Clippard brass check valves for years with absolutely no failures. They are the highest quality, made in the USA, have a low 'crack pressure' (opening presssure) of approximately 35 mbar. The model MCV-1BB is excellent and you can get it with various hose barbs for either standard airline or CO2 line. Here is a good thread for reference.
