Hmm, never serviced one of these so i have no clue on how to tackle that issue. Maybe i should replace it then. And yeah, the fish will definitely be screwed if it happens to fail overnight. I inject quite alot of co2.Oh ok. Sounds like it's probably needs to be serviced (if possible) or replaced.
My concern would be a bubble every few seconds isn't too bad but what happens if it fails and allows CO² to be added continuously to your tank. Again not an issue if you're only adding a small amount but if you're on the upper end, adding CO² over night might cause real issues for your fish.
Thanks alot John! i'll have a look at this.I had the same problem last year but with a lot faster bubble count abd CO2Art advised me to dismantle the solenoid and clean it with alcohol.
Instructions are on the website under FAQ/instruction manuals
I think this is the link?
I also stretched the spring slightly and haven' t had a problem since.
The instructions are easy to follow.
Nope, it's not a co2art product. it's just a cheap solenoid valve i got second hand that came with a 2kg bottle and a regulator.Hi, did you get as far as this?
Mine was the version with nut holding the plunger but both have the same internal assembly?
The rubber pad B might have some impression marks or grit on the surface.
Is it a CO2 Art product ? If not can you post a picture?
