Top Fin® Aquarium Check Valve is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good to have This is very important to have in case your air pump ever turns off and the water back siphons. It does its job and stops the water. Only concern is that it weakens the airflow slightly and is overpriced for what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Got this to setup a bubble wall in my new 20gal. Works great and does what it's supposed to when I turn off the power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work I have had 2 of these exact check valves fail where water has entered my pump; I would never recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money This is one piece of equipment that I bought which is a complete waste of money. Firstly, you assume everything works until a scenario where it is tested. I have it inline with my air-tubing that supplies CO2 from a DIY setup instead of air from a pump and whenever the CO2 is turned off, after a few minutes, the water comes down not only until the check valve but through and past it. This is the very purpose of having a check valve and this one does not serve the purpose at all. The finish looked nice and thats the reason I bought it but I now know that its a piece of junk that I wasted my money on. I should have gotten a higher quality check valve.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad flow.. I purchased this airline chk valve and after connecting it between the air pump and air stone (inside the sponge filter, I noticed it restricted the volume of air flow through the airline and thus causing the filter to give its 100%. I know that a check valve is crucial if your pump is below water level however in saying this, one would have to keep the air pump at least a foot above water level to keep the water from back flowing into the air pump.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed w/in a Few Months The valve isn't allowing any air through the line. I've checked the connection multiple times. The pump works as it should. The airlines are clear. The air stone is functional. The valve itself is a complete failure.
