    needle valve

    Any recommendations on a good needle vavle i can add to my liquidator. I have fought the quarter turn push connects for 3 years and I'm wondering if there's something better. I don't think a brass valve would be the answer so wondering if there is a plastic one out there? No luck finding one myself

    The Hayward needle valve is a good valve but it's pretty expensive.

    That certainly looks good. I wouldn't be afraid to try it out.

    How did this valve work out? Did you end up using it?
    Looks like a $50 minimum on ordering from this site... Zoro tools has the Hayward it for $45
