    Recommendations for a Liquidator flow indicator?

    Anyone have luck finding a quality flow indicator (tubing is 1/4 ID and 3/8 OD) for the Liquidator? The one included leaked air (and so did its replacement). I don't have one installed right now, but it would be nice to have one to fine tune the output from the Liquidator.
