Re: [APD] Aro valve or - My Aro flew into the air and fell to earthin the waste basket

The other value of a metering valve is to impede the flow
if the regulator dumps. I doubt the Aro would do that.

If they won't work without a solenoid, then they probalby
aren't doing much good with a solenoid.
