Default CO2 regulator and solenoid

There seems to be a lot of regulators but most of the aquarium branded ones are pretty cheap looking. I was thinking of going and getting an industrial type one or maybe one for kegging. I figure if I'm down at 10 psi I should be good to go.

Before I do is there any quality setups that you'd recommend, lots of the ones I look at online have pretty mediocre reviews.

Thanks

All these things are complicated but the single stage regulators tend to have co2 dump as the tank runs out. Matheson is a good brand of regulator I got one recently from another planted tank fan. Parker makes good solenoids. GLA is a company many people seem to like. CO2Art is another. The cheaper brands of single stage regulators aren’t really all that good but some people have success with them. If you spend some time you can often find good used deals. I got a very good set up the other day for 80 bucks.
