Welcome to the group, astro!

Looks like a great project, I have one going on that is similar. Hope to get some water or at least rocks in mine today!

We'll look forward to hearing more about you as you read through some of the stuff we've posted too. I wish i had the check valve you need, but it isn't common stuff. Good possibility that someone will have it here though.

I can relate to the long hours. My son works in a restaurant in New Orleans and we hardly ever see him, long hours is an understatement!
