Ok I picked up the jbj style bubble counter from Tongs(its actually Mr Aqua), it cost more than I wanted to pay $26 after taxes but I figured get it now because many of the online stores have discontinued the JBJ. Besides, after shipping i'd be looking at about $20. So what is $6.00 for instant gratification. The cost of the toll road!!!
I Added silcone grease to the gaskets and teflon to the brass plastic connection so all should seal tight.
