CO2 Flow Fine Tuning via IV type roller valve

Oh, so close!

Bob, I'm setting up a 10G tank and plan to test out my latest gizmo. Now try
to picture this; a 1G jar with a rubber stopper. An IV-bag filled with white
vinegar, which through the drip control of the roller stopper will drip into
the jar. In the jar there will be some baking soda, which will, on contact
with the vinegar, give off co2. Another line out of the stopper is an
inverted IV drip counter, which makes a great bubble counter (Got the idea
from Dr. what's his name in India who is on this list). The co2 will go into
the tank from there.

IV setups also have great check valves in the line.

I know, I know, one of these days I'll cough up the money for a co2 tank and
such. But this looks a whole lot weirder when people see it!

Not sure how the roller stopper would work holding back too much pressure.
The way I have mine set up, there's no pressure that can build up. I'd worry
too much using it to regulate something under pressure, because how do you
bleed off excess pressure on the side where the co2 is generated or
contained at high psi?
