OK, at least one person is in the process of setting up a pressurized CO2 system. I'm even considering splitting mine out to all three tanks.

that would be cool but I'd be at a total loss as for what to do with it! LOL


Perhaps we can get something together as a group to assist us newer folks with DIY CO2!

You know...
Kind of a "buy this stuff and show up and someone will teach you" type of thing!

Sure. Shouldn't be a problem. And IIRC the "coin" version will work with the lower pressures of DIY.

On the flip side, in SoCal we have www.BeverageFactory.com as a local seller. A 5# Co2 is like $57 coupled with $30 for a regulator. Add a needle valve from Rex Grigg and a solenoid if you want it, and you're looking at a very inexpensive pressurized system with shipping on nothing but the needlge valve and/or solenoid.

the aquabid link doesn't work any more. I'd be itnerested in going presurized for the right price Less chance of my fish being suffocated.

hmmmm i like the idea of the beverage factory...im going to start injecting as soon as I decide on the equipment i want....by chance do you know if they take the $30 as a deposit on the regulator and fix it if you have problems like as in the same as renting a keg tap.......and the needle valve and solenoid...how do i get that exactly?

I just ordered a milwaukee regulator from aquatic-store. Should be here in a couple days. Beverage factory will fill up a 5# bottle for $10, plus the bottle (brand new, aluminum) is only $57! All local places I've seen want aroun $90 for a steel bottle and $20 to fill.
...Wish I would've seen this thread a little earlier, I already ordered my diffuser.

other than a regulator, a bottle of co2 and a way to difuse it, what else is needed to compress Co2?

Needle valve to fine tune the flow, brass check valve, and (optional) a bubble counter. Most units come with these.
