Hello All,
I have got a CO2 regulator and planning to use for my 50 lt. However, i can not be sure if this is reliable one. This is coming from another hobbyist. Hence,i assume it was used for aquarium. I can not understand itd brand so cant google it.
Any commends woild be excellent.
Thank

Hi
I would purchase a decent valve!
You don't want it sticking on the open position and gasing your inhabitants:eek:
There are loads out there...depends how much you want to spend;)

Hi
I don't think Co2 Art "one of our sponsors" has available separate solenoids for sale!
Have a look at Co2 Supermarket....there are a few options within your budget;)

Many thanks Hogan, Just checked Co2 Supermarket and another quick question, there are two items in CO2 supermarket and I think they are same except one of them has needle valve. What is the purpose of this component?

Hi
All though you have an open and close knob on your reg.
You can fine-tune your Co2 output with this valve!
You just need to have all the valves open doing this;)

Although I've never owned one of these Aqua Medic regs!
Just another point, you will need to select a diffuser that will run at 1.5bar as this working pressure is pre-set with this regulator, I think!
