Where do I find a bubbler valve?
This is not my design nor gen that I use, but I need to locate where to get a bubbler valve. I am not sure if that is the correct name for it, but I have also read it called - vacuum adjustment valve, bubbler, bubbler check valve. I am sure none of these are it's actual true name, and I've searched the net like crazy trying to find one. Confused

Can't find this at lowes, or walmart or even petsmart (in the aquarium section). It is a very simple design: a black knob with a clear hose that adjusts to allow outside air back into the water as the vacuum pulls the air out. If anyone here knows where I can find it and what it is exactly called (please provide me with a link I can follow), I would GREATLY appreciate it.
Thanks!!

Sounds like you want a check valve. If so, check the bottom of this page.

I don't think so. I already have check valves. In the photo I posted, it is the black adjustable knob with a clear hose attatched to it. It allows adjustable air-flow back into the gen (they come out as bubbles). It is a very simple product and yet I can find it no-where.

Maybe a needle valve then.

Try that same link, but you'll have to find it in a different area.

On water4gas, they call it a "vacuum adjustment valve". On magdrive, they call it a vacuum regulator or bubbler head. Most people call them bubblers. To my understanding, a check valve is to allow the one way flow of air. This bubbler valve is to precisely adjust the flow of air into the water as a result of the vacuum sucking gas out of the container.

Here is a photo of it and the irrigational name for it from the website I just ordered a couple from a few hours ago.

Go to you local hardware store, in the sprinkler drip line area and find a bubbler head it will do what you need.
