    Aftermarket valves and parts for LQ

    Hey all,

    Somewhere someone was talking about some aftermarket more heavy duty parts for the LQ, especially metering valves. Now, I can't find it. I did find this thread, but I thought someone had found some really heavy duty ones. If you know, could you post it here please?

    Here's the thread I found, but it wasn't exactly what I was looking for. That said, if you have tried these, could you give me an update?

    Re: Aftermarket valves and parts for LQ is what I use. I got it quite a bit cheaper on eBay.

    I never tried the pinch valve, but it should work if you change the tubing out to something less stiff than the OEM tubing that comes on the LQ.

    I searched for a long time for parts that would work, and the ones I found wound up costing as much as much as the Stenner setup I have now.

    The float valves I found averaged about $40 a piece and I never found a flow meter that I thought would work.

    It's pretty moot anyway. Hasa has a lifetime warranty on parts for the LQ.
