Thanks for any light ya'll can shine on this subject.
My UDS is not finished yet, but I have bought a gate valve instead of a ball valve. Not sure about air flow, but with liquids a ball valve is simply used for on and off, whereas a gate valve is used to control the flow. Probably over thinking it, but we'll see how it goes soon hopefully.

I also like the look of a gate valve more than a ball valve.
