Anyone know where or how to create one?
I have noticed that also. The fisrt tank I bought, the on/off started leaking after ~3 months. They replaced it for free but still a pain. I am just waiting to see if the new one will last. Point being, save your recieptsThis is basically the same concept as what Dennis has about, but I personally had bad experiences with tanks that had built in on/off valves leaking (doesn't mean you will!)
So your regulator has the little hole for the tubing already when you got it, or did you have to make it yourself and put it in? Also would the thread of the regulator fit a 12oz paintball tank thats refillable?Here's my DIY setup. I puchased the regulator from Austin brewery or something like that. I get the CO2 tanks at Big 5. The tanks are not refillable but the price is not bad, 14 - 16 bucks and you get two which last about one month each.
The setup and operation is not cheap IMO, but is convenient for my 8 gal.
I also will be making a hanger for it so I can hang the setup behind the tank. Right now I just have it setting in a 30 yr old Avon beer stein.
