Valve for 3/16" CO2 tube
I am currently experimenting with DIY CO2. I am doing it on my less planted tank just in case anything goes wrong, it's easier to fix. Well the DIY CO2 is working much better than I expected and is actually making too much CO2 for the tank.
So I thought to fix this I can throw a T connector in the 3/16" tube and on the additional branch I could add a valve to let some of the CO2 escape. I have found an abundance of cheap plastic valves for air lines but I worry they might not do well with the pressure or might even be damaged by the CO2. The only valve that was better was an $11 small aluminum valve on eBay that I think they wanted $5 shipping as well.
So I am here in hopes that you experts might have had to buy something like this before and would be willing to toss me a link to where I might find something decent to use. Thanks in advance.
