I remember your comment now....I sort of disregarded the check valve because I
was reading in the archives that it needed to be replaced with the pump, but
my pump's OK and I really didn't want to replace a non-broken part.  But after
talking to Rod and him being able to get only the check valve, I resurfaced
the issue.  I will check Miller's site.
