    Help ID Oxygen Valve Please

    I think this oxygen valve is used by many clubs, and our club needs one! But I cannot seem to find it anywhere.
    Can anyone tell me what type it is and how to find one? It releases oxygen by pressing sideways on the black part. Thank you

    That's a 'flexible rubber blow gun' or 'rubber kink blow gun'. Google those and you'll find em. Here are two to look at. Legacy AG209 Flexible Rubber Blow Gun Rubber Kink Blowgun Retail Packaging

    I bought the blowgun kit at Lowes and took it to the local Air Gas company Airgas | Home and the guy hooked me up with a short piece of hose and fittings for cheap.

    Well I'll be jiggered! I had no idea what it was called - you are right, found lots of them now that I know what it is.
    Thank you SO MUCH !!

    While I am here, the reason we want this is that the grip type nozzle we have is very slow - this type that we borrowed from someone is much faster.
    Why is that?

    The regulators are exactly the same. The hose on the slower one seems to be a smaller diameter than on the fast one.
    If that makes a difference?

    Armed with the very helpful information from Appliance Guy I went to our oxygen supply people today. They had the proper valve, and changed the hose for me - the old hose had a very small inner diameter. This will make life much easier for us in moving koi about. Thank you!
