Joe,
I’m in Encinitas but don’t want to sell. I don’t need the braking but do have it to maintain compliance.

Hi Van,
Have you found a high quality check valve you'd recommend? Seems like that would replace the need for the extra ball valve if it is reliable and leak-free? Or do all of the checks leak...
