Hey Gang,

Wright Huntly offers: 
>>Dumping had absolutely nothing to do with regulator
quality, and a lot to do with improper use of a
check-valve/diffuser as a flow restrictor. Read 
the history before getting too indignant. Your
comments are misplaced and do the hobby little good,

Add another opinion to that one. See next paragraph.

Well, I bought it, and had dumps. I called the seller
on it and he *bent over backwards* to fix it. While he
may not come right out and say that set-up was faulty,
he *does* say that if fish are involved one should
strongly consider a needle valve (paraphrased). All
this after some fire from angry purchasers and
critics. This distributor is still in business and
wants to stay that way, so making a public
announcement that a product that you swore by is going
to kill your fish isn't, maybe, the best strategy.

I have this regulator. I've dropped it while moving,
replaced fittings, and taken it off and replaced it
onto tanks a dozen times....Works great. All of my
failures have been *AFTER* the regulator.

Cheers mates,
John Wheeler
