Just recieved the new regulator from Aqua-store.com. Does this regulator combo suppose to have contained a check valve? I get conflicting information from some people. I was told by the store rep that it does contain a check valve...but I've read that it doesnt. Can someone please clarify? And can anyone tell me where I can purchase a cheap Check valve for a CO2 setup?

Thanks,
Rafael

No, the milwaukee all in one unit, as manufactured, contains NO check valve. Possible that Aqua-store.com packages a check valve with what they sell, but that's it.
My milwaukee didn't have a check valve.

Thanks gregg. I just ended up ordering the Dennerle check valve earlier. In the meantime I'm still gonna use start setting up my CO2 system and keep the tank a little higher than the water level temporarily. I noticed that the JBJ regulator has the check valve built in with the bubble counter..hmmm..could the milwaukee combo be the same? Oh well, not that it matters now.

as far as I saw on my regulator, no the milwaukee doesn't have any built in check valve. as I recall the setup instructions tell you to put a check valve on it.
