Replace Hot Water Htr Bypass Valve..

I currently have the Swan industries valve with the check valve set-up.

Is there something better or more popular that airstreamers are putting in there?

You could use 3 normal one way, valves from the hardware store, much more durable. Also self explanatory when winterizing

Yes I saw diagrams of the three valve method.
What I have seems to be one valve and a check valve?

I did away with my bypass. I drain completely before a freeze so it's not needed.
