Don't thank me, thank Bettatail and a couple others that Did the research and testing with these types of valves. And then told us about them. A couple months ago, I would have passed on it not knowing it's ease of adjustment. It's also not really how much something retails for, it how well it works for us. This valve works incredibly well.
Well I am thoroughly impressed those crappy brass ones are a PITA to adjust 1/4 turn and its full flow on those crappy brass ones this will be 100 fold better. Thanks again bettatail you too oldpunk78. Now if I can just find an adapter from 1/8" pipe to a screw lock like the one in this picture

I would be a happy camper. Otherwise I will install the crappy brass valve on parker output and run it wide open just for the hose lock.

Thanks, Josh.

TheKribKeeper, if you want to build a better co2 system yourself, you can check Josh's detail instruction, click the sticky in this section you will find it.
and Darkblade48 has another thread you can explore, about the relationship of different parts and instruction, it is in FAQ section.

I ordered 1 more for my 40 breeder just because it was such a good deal I didn't want to pass it up. Thanks again.

The Parker metering valves were available on eBay several months ago.

I do not believe the original seller has any more.

Also, 5 month thread resurrection
