Sounds like a check vavle to me too! I got bubble counter and check valve from aquaticmagic and the c/v has a red plunger that acts as a non-return valve.

Is this what it looks like?

You can see the bubble counter below the c/v

Submerge the bubble counter in water (orientation in that pic above), the water will force the air out of it and it'll be full.

Hey Simon, that check valve should be before the bubble counter mate so that water can't get back to the regulator.

How do you find the counter though? Any good?

Thats an interesting place to have your check valve. Have you thought that the water from the bubble counter could still end up in your reg or solinoid? Or do you have another check valve underneither that?
