Would this needle valve work? Looks like it would need to be inline with the tubing.

Wouldn't an inline needle valve cause excess pressure on the tubing upstream from the valve?

Not sure if that would work. If your using Swagelok brand, members here are using the Swagelok B-ORM2 Needle valve. Might want to look that up.

So I was out and about, and I found a hole in the wall paintball shop, so I stopped in. I ended up finding the adapter and gauge for $11.00. I asked if they had anyore, but it was the last one. They are going to order me two more. If I can get more I'll do it and sell them if anyone wants one.

sent from my phone, because I can't get the internet out in the boonies.

Cool! Locally paintball shops tends to have it cheaper than online. Whether it's a gauge or on/off asa adapter.

Looks like the right one base on the online website itself.

If the opposite side of the gauge doesn't have a thread, you can always remove the gauge itself and use a needle valve on that side instead. If it does have another threaded side on the opposite side of the gauge, then put the needle valve there while keeping your gauge in the same position it is now.

Here are the pics you requested..... everything fits nice and tight, no leaks.... now for the real test...... as I said, if I can get more, and if this one works, I would be willing to buy them and sell to anyone who is interested. Cost would be the total price, plus shipping. So no more than $20, but I know shipping is less.

Looking good. Do list total price you spent. I still have a few members messaging me about a ball park average for total price.

Thanks
Jase

@dzydvl - by far that is the cheapest price for an asa on/off with gauge price.
So far the cheapest I got from ebay for an ASA on/off valve - $12 and gauge - $5.

$20 shipped for the ASA on/off, gauge and home depot needle valve is the cheapest way to get the set.

Hey Jaggedfury,

This is pretty good stuff. Looks like you spend good amount of time doing these nice researches. My tank is not rightly setup for plantedone or else i would give that a shot.

By the way, FYI, I have ordered that FX5 filter, I am expecting that to arrive in about couple of weeks. Will let you know how it works out once I get it.

Thanks

Thanks. Yepp, Works great. Do give it a shot if you ever go into planted tank. Even if it doesn't require co2, co2 will help promote growth faster. As you know, it's pretty cheap to rig one up. Doesn't take up alot of room. Definitely keep me updated on the Fx5, you went with the right choice.

Those look really nice. Definitely pm me when you get them, I've already got the neddle valve from lowes so the gauge and asa is all I need. If I can't find something locally ill definitly buy one from you

I will give the the place a call tomorrow and see how if they can order several of them. I should have clarified, the Ada on/off with the pressure gauge was $11.61. If I can get more I will ship them out if people want. If there would be an interest I would be willing to buy the individual parts and assemble them. In that case it would be whatever the cost of parts would be, plus shipping. I will know more tomorrow on the Ada valve. It looks like a few people might be interested, if you would be just let me know in this thread. I only get 25 pm's, so my box fills up quickly. Anyone know how to get that increased?
