[APD] CO2 System

Thanks for the responses. 
Bob - you have a great website.  I've been reading all your links to CO2
systems - and there sure is a lot of information there.  However, I'm still
undecided on which brands to go with.  I think I've decided that a solenoid
and bubblecounter is probably not needed from what I've read.  Please
correct me if I'm wrong or if anyone has more advice on purchasing a CO2

>Aquamedic CO2 regulator w/needle valve & solenoid & bubble counter

Robert H at www.aquabotanic.com sells/used to sell this regulator.  Never
heard anything bad about it.

There are other "all in one" regulators from Milwaukee and JBJ you might
want to look at.  Also, if you are not going to use the solenoid, you might
save money buying a regulator without one and piecing everything you need

For more info on different tanks, regulators, needle valves, reactors, etc
take a look at my web site at

If you get a Norgren regulator with a steady 20psi output (that's close to 
1.5bar), I can sell you two needle valves and two diffusors for $100, or if 
you find some buddies to go in with you, you can get 6 needle valves and 
diffusors for $200 on our 500th system special.

> Hi,
>   I've been looking into buying a CO2 system to be split

> Aquamedic CO2 regulator w/needle valve & solenoid &
> bubble counter  
> Regulator: The regulator unit is chrome plated and offers
> a fixed working
> pressure of 1.5 bar, a needle valve for fine adjustment
> and two pressure
> gauges to show both the cylinder and working
> pressures.The regulator fits
> industry standard CO2 cylinders having an external valve.
> Solenoid Valve: The standard solenoid valve has a high
> quality body
> manufactured from nickel plated brass with a maximum
> operating pressure of 6
> bar. Pressure fittings for 6mm flexible hose can be
> connected to all our C02
> units. The solenoid coil consumes only 2.5 watts of
> electrical energy to
> prevent overheating. In conjunction with a pH controller,
> automatic control
> of the CO2 supply and pH can be achieved. If used with a
> timer, the valve
> will provide a night shut off system.
> Bubble Counter:The bubble counter is a simple and safe
> unit for monitoring
> the dosage of CO2 gas into aquaria. It should be
> installed in the low
> pressure part of the gas delivery circuit. An integrated
> non return valve
> prevents water flow back and a robust holding plate
