    Lunapet are a good company. I bought my first regulator through them and had no probs, but most people here have bought something from them at some time or other.

    Yes i got one of those. Had for about a year with no probs what so ever infact i prefer it to the D&D one i had on another setup, it runs a lot cooler than the D&D one.

    I've just ordered a reg from aquaticmagic, another company which seems to be pretty popular for regs

    Same solenoid on my kit. Never hear it (if it clicks it's quieter than the click of my mechanical timer) as it's silent, and it only runs a bit hot (doesn't burn). 2 pin europlugs are easier to get adaptors for as well. :lol:

    I've got one of those & it emptied a bottle before I realised. The lock washer was too wide and didn't allow the seal to mate inside, it was OK while I was using their reactor (low pressure), however when I switched to a glass diffuser the higher pressure caused a leak. On removal of the lock washer the rubber seal was allowed to mate and the problem disappeared. I passed this info on to them but got no response back, so can only hope they resolved it.

    Sounds like you tried to attach it directly onto the regulator, I did the same and had the same problem. Mount them inline though and they are fine, and not as noisy as the Malaysian ones.
