I prefer ball type checks myself, I've seen the piston style get caught up and stick inside the body... although they do seal a little better than the balls..

my cheap little 10 dollar brass check I bought has held 170psi in my tank since I disassembled ecerything back in September, so I'd say its pretty tight..

ya, the more pressure on the check, the better it will seal, due to the force being applied to the ball
you better hope so or else i have waisted my time ;)

Yes, like Dan said, stick with balls. Swing checks and "piston" checks do tend to stick when there's a lot of back pressure for long periods of time.
