    Hi,
    Yes splitters work to varying degrees. it's often difficult to get the right balance of pressure/flow out of each of the spuds so you need to pay attention to that.

    Cheers,

    just a question, can you use a standard airline valve on each 'line' so you can reduce the amount going to your 60L and have more going to your 350L, something like 1/3 and 2/3rds. Is this possible? i know algarde make them.

    I've used a splitter before to good effect. It was one of the ones from TGM with a little "regulator" on it. It took some doing to get it right but once it was set it was great.
