Is that 1/4" line? I bought one on amazon without much of an issue a few years back. My valve at the top was metal though and not huge so not great if you need to make a lot of adjustments with big hands. It was like this one.

Haha no I didn't have to...but I might not have used it for the same thing you did and was unsure if the adjustment valve on this would work for you.

Strange that they want so much shipping...I'm a Prime member and shipping for that was listed as free.

This is for a kalk-stirrer?
Just going to do a slow drip?
Not the same, but would a 1/4" irrigation valve work? I used one in past for a calcium reactor.
