Re: [APD] Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 35, Issue 6

The reason I don't like the new needle valve on the Milwaukee combo unit is
because it just is not accurate enough. I can have 1 bubble per 3 seconds
coming from the regulator and then move to needle valve adjustor 1 micron,
literally, and have 15 bps coming out of it. I truly believe I would get
better performance from a plastic airline valve, it's that bad. I have an
older unit just like it and that one works fine btw. I didn't replace it
mainly because, once set correctly, you really don't need to move it again.
In my case, the bubble counter is a necessity because of the needle valve's
For a pH meter I got the PinPoint Marine per Scott Hieber's suggestion. I
like it a lot, it is accurate and easy to read and use. It measures to 0.01
pH, which is actually more accurate than needed, but it works well.

Good morning, Lawrence!
  Did you replace the Milwaukee needle valve, or just live with it?  What
makes it a piece of crap in your opinion?  I've learned from researching
that what one person may find a product's complete liability is actually
considered a desirable benefit by others.  Would you expand upon your review
of the AB-sold Milwaukee needle valve?  The reason I ask is because I had
already identified the AB set as one of my most likely kit purchases, so I'm
interested in what you have to say.  
  Thanks for the chemical name of the CO2 resistant tubing!  I'm gonna get
that with the extra thickness because of my other pets...
  Cheers & Gig'Em,
