Has anyone got or used the AQUAMEDIC SOLENOID VALVE seen it on ebay.

Never had or used a solenoid before so any pointers would be good....will these fit on a DD Regulator and do they have a UK plug?

If this is no good could you let me know a decent make

Cheers ;)

I use the one from Lunapet, never had any problems and its silent, it does comes with an Euro plug which can be cut and replaced. Or plugged straight into a Digital timer like I did.

Aquamedic regulators are nothing special for their cost, after using D&D, Jbl, aquaticmagic and lunapets I can honestly say the luna pet regulator has been the most reliable and easy to use, also at the time it was just £36, I'd pay double that even now it's been that good.

Solenoids are fitted inline so you can use any make, lunapet do one for about £15 on ebay. I'm on a friends pc so I don't have a link but they should be pretty easy to find, they're a german seller.

Don't attach it to the regulator, just attach it "inline". It should be the very first attachment to the tube after the reg.
