Re: Compressed Gas Regulators
I've been reading the thread about the regulators, dumping no dumping, one stage, two stage, one gauge, dual gauge. Well, IMHO the easiest solution has been suggested a few times: Weight. Why not buy some cheap bathroom equipment to measure your body weight. It is accurate enough. Just place it under your CO2 bottle. Calculate the empty weight ( see previous posts ). When you know the empty weight of your bottle take a red pen and write it on the scale.Check the weight during your regular maintenance (A (wo)man 's gotta do what a (wo)man 's gotta do) Hey, I know it is not perfectly accurate but if you add a little bit you will never run any risk. It this being too simple? The bit of CO2 you don't use will not make a difference in your budget considering the amount of money people spend on other gadgets for their tanks. To avoid misunderstanding:I do respect everybodies opinion and ideas, knowledge about regulators etc…and everybody has the freedom of choice. This was just an !
idea. Anybody tried it before?
At the same time I also wish to thank everybody for answers regarding Ph pens and probes about a month ago. I do appreciate the help. It is so easy to get many opinions on this list. It may not help 100 % in knowing what is the best solution, but it sure helps to rule out some completely disastreous ideas or misunderstanding of methods. ( dump a bottle of H2O2 in the tank was a good one)
Who's downstair neighbours' fish escaped when the Tempaku river flooded his appartment during the Taifoen we had earlier this week! No joke! ( I guess the fish didn't make it in the chemical junk on his way to the eternal Pacific)
