Default solenoid question

Starting to build up a CO2 system but want add a solenoid. What are some suppliers? What fitting are needed. Also in need of a good single needle, pin, or ball valve. Opions and suppliers please.

I reccommend the JBJ setup, it has the soleniod, gauges, and bubble counter all-in-one. No complaints on my end from it. Pretty good price too.

I have the Milwaukee systems on all my tanks and am very happy with them.

Check out the product review section https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/reviews/index.php to get some ideas of other peoples experience with the different ones.

As for suppliers, many of the sponsors here carry what you need, so check out their section as well.

I don't want the total system. My space is limited. but do want to turn on/off my flow with a timer and solenoid. This will be going on a 20oz bottle.

20oz? Yo mean like a paintball tank? If so you're going to need to find an adapter in order to get a regulator to connect to it. Do a search on Paintball and CO2 and you should find info on the stuff you'd need.

I have all the parts to get from the paintball tank to a regulator and reactor. I just need a good solenoid. I will post the results to the total setup later.

So yo do have the regulator already? You can get just the solenoid from places like Aquariumplants.com. I believe it'll have female 1/8" NPT threads so you'll need the appropriate nipples to connect it to your regulator and bubble counter/needle valve.
