If anyone wants non return valves, you can get them from any pet supplies shop as they are used for fish tanks. :)


My friend used that kind of valves, but they were no good - fluid pressure decreased too much. As there is many types of fish tank valves it might be the matter of luck. I prefer to use well tested genuine automotive parts in my car ;)

also fish tank valves are used to pass air through and to stop the return of water in the case of a fault on an air pump...so i dont know how they would handle with the constant fluid being passed through the valve... may have no difference what so ever but its worth a thought...
+1 to pidu i think id prefer something designed for cars

Could somebody post a link to the hose they used to connect the non return valves to the jet, i bought 4mm dia stuff off ebay but it seems to loose a connection, so i figured someone on here could give us a nudge in the right direction,

Ta very much,

I was looking at quotes recently, one dealership came back and said that a pair of mist and heated jets was just under £22.00 think the valves were about a fiver.

Which dealer?  The heated ones used to be something stupid like £4 each, but I can't find them for less than £25 the pair now :(
