    Jet works alternative?

    Has anyone tried a generic check valve in place of a jet works valve? I seem to have overlooked this mod and wanted to try something but too cheap to fork up the $40

    Jetworks isn't just a check valve (one way valve). It is a pressure activated flow rate control valve.

    The pressure at which it increases the flow rate is adjustable.

    The jet works is a check valve in a sense. It's used more as a pressure regulator. It holds the water flow off till the pump builds more pressure thru RPM. Never heard of someone using something else in it's place.

    what happens when you flip it around backwards? wouldn't it be a check valve..?? Every check valve has an opening pressure, some 1psi some .5psi.. If you could find a check valve that you can take apart you could make one rather easily I would think

    Yes it is a simple ball check valve with adjustable cracking pressure. Any check valve will work if you adjust the cracking pressure by changing springs.
