How long will a 500g Co2 canister last on a 180 liter setup?
Mine last 3 - 4 weeks at 2 bps on 8 hours a day on a 180 litre tank
You'd be better off with a 2kg FE
My mum wont let me go the fire extinguisher route. She only wants me to get a proper set but i give her untill christmas before she has had enough of taking me to get refills.
Hope you can get cheap refills! I have seen people charging Â£15-25 to refill a 500g bottle
Yeh me too! Stick at it, she'll give in Im sure!!
Â£14.95 for 500g and Â£25.95 for 2kg. To buy a 2kg cylinder though its Â£150! im tempted to just buy the fire extinguisher etc and hide it. She never goes near the tank so i may get away with it.
You can buy two full 2kg off Dan Crawford for Â£37 including delivery
Thats where I get my CO2 from
What do you do with the used bottles and will any solenoid and regulator fit?
Used bottles either throw then in the recycle bin, or put them up for sale on ebay, someone might collect them from you.
Ok, what about the solenoid and regulator? will any fit a FE or do i have to modify it?
Any of these in this post will do: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=3090
I have the one from Lunapet works great
Crikey I feel lucky!
I've just rung the fire extinguisher shop around the corner from where I live. He's offereing a 2nd hand 5 kg cylinder for Â£10 each and will refill for Â£10 a time... in other words he's giving me the bottles for free!
Oooh, be sure to add his details to a relevant where to buy thread, that's the sort of info that's really useful
Shop around mate, thats rip of prices Imho, even up in the north of scotland i get my 5 kg refilled for Â£17.50.
Thats a complete BARGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Where do you live?
