Rough guess, a year, If not on when light off.

Why do you ask? Do you have one running? Are you experiencing problems? Are are you just contemplating the idea......?

yes im thinking of definalty getting one...looking at the size of the 5gk i think i will have to go for the 2kg, not to worry though i just wanted to get an idea of how long these last, for there price, in comparison to the aquarium sold co2 setups.

I'm glad I got mine - it was very easy to set up, and looking at the size of it, compared with the size of the disposable aquarium CO2 bottles, I'm going to save a huge amount of money.

Have you seen the guide of how to set it up in the 'tutorials' section of the forum? It has pictures and I found it really useful.

The old black Fire Extinguishers are now obsolete, so once empty i don't think you will get it refilled.

Cheers Gordon.
