    I need a check valve from the reactor inline to the co2 regulator. Any thoughts as to what check valve I should purchase?

    Thanks

    This check valve has a fairly good reputation:

    Anything in brass or glass will probably function well. Avoid plastic; it'll only cause you problems.

    In glass = plastic. Only the container is glass, the valve is plastic
    And yes, brass or stainless steel valves are the best. Plastic will soon or later leak

    Oh you can get glass:
    ADA Cabochon Ruby glass check valve

    At $50 each, it's the sort of thing you need to have a bit of a hardware fetish for... and the desire to pay extra for kanji and haikus ;)
