    Will this check valve work with acid

    Will this check valve work with a low pressure stenner pump plumb into the return side of the system with acid?

    Thank you,
    Anthony

    The PVC body and the EPDM rubber gasket should be okay, but I'm not so sure about the 304 stainless spring in there holding up.

    I found that muriatic acid is another name for hydrochloride acid. It won't hold up.
