what's first?

I have a question. On my water connection, if I look into the pipe with the garden hose removed, all I see is a spring. There is nothing to stop it from falling out. What is this?

After ruling out it being part of a check valve, It must be there to keep a filter screen from going down inside my plumbing. The screen must have just fallen off sometime when I disconnected the water hose.
I'm redoing my plumbing with copper tubing and Shark Bite fittings. Am I making a poor decision by not reinstalling a water pressure meter? I think my flow resistor does the same general thing.

You're better of replacing your plumbing with pex tubing & crimp rings & fittings. It'll be a lot cheaper & easier in the end. Skip the built in pressure regulator & use an inline version at the spigot in the campground. These are easily replaced when they fail.

X2 what he said. also consider the external in line water filter. Much easier to access for reverse flush or replacement.
