[DML] Re: Soft brake peddle UPDATE

A suggestion.

You can get airline check valves from fish/pet stores.  The check
valves are used in conjunction with air pump to prevent water from
siphoned into the air pump.

The check valve costs about 2 bucks.  Connect to your bleed line and
voila.  Automatic one way valve.  No need to pinch the line with pliers.
