I ordered the optional ball valve, but the flow rate was not fast enough that I actually needed to control the power so I removed it from the line.
when I had my fluval I was always worried it would suck too much so I had a huge sponge on the intake, but with this there are no worries. Of course, I am not using it on a salt water tank right now, so I am much less paranoid.
btw, you can order these on amazon before, and it had free shipping.
II know where to buy it....
