here is a picture of the setup that can be easily done with the new parker metering valve.

This metering valve is a very accurate *needle valve*.

The fittings are 1/8" size and can be purchased at your local hardware in the plumbing department. Just remove your existing needle valve, and install a male to male fitting into the solenoid and attach your new metering valve.

Another male to male fitting installed in the metering valve for the bubble counter to be installed. the JBJ bubble counter works great and comes with a built in check valve. I have one inline with the tubing as extra protection.

Just an FYI thread for those who were looking to pick up this metering valve.

Great job, Ken!!

You can add two elbows and a nipple or hex nipple to lower the assembly and make the bubble counter lower if you need to.

Order of placement: elbow - nipple - elbow
