I am considering Saving for a Pressurized CO2 system, and i have some questions. Im thinking about Red Sea Paintball Cylinder Style Regulator KIT, Does anyone have this? How long do the Paint Ball Cylinders last if your running say 30ppm co2?How Long would a 2.5 lb Cylinder last? How long does a 5lb Cylinder last if i get a unit for standard CO2 tanks? How long does a 20LB cylinder last? Does anyone know of a reasonably priced kit for the 2.5,5,and 20lb Cylinders? it would be a Standard Cylinder.

I've only got a 20 gallon myself so I don't know how long those tanks would last, but I'm sure that someone with a 55g will come along soon enough and let you know.

That's the beauty of pressurized. Once you have it set up, you can truly forget about it until it's time to get the tank re-filled. With diy, you can pretty much expect to be making up that sugar/yeast goop every 2 weeks. I understand why people go diy - I did it for 6 months or so, but once you go pressurized you'll wonder why you didn't before.
