    Hi All

    I am looking for a little adjustable valve to controll the flow that comes out of my return pump and goes into my media reactor.
    The size of the pipe is the one that fits straight onto a return pump.
    Any idea where I would find a tap like that?

    How about the normal plastic valves that you use for irrigation? If you choose the correct size the piping plugs into the valve and you wont even need any clamps etc. I've used this for some time already with my Bio pellet reactor without issues. Bought at Builders.

    I tried that but its made for a soft pipe and the hard pvc pipe wont go into it without some heavy modification.

    Use a short piece of silicone piping to link the hard PVC pipe to the tap.

    I'm using a soft pipe so its perfect.
    I'm sure you do get one that fits on a pvc pipe as well.
