Re: [APD] Re:Complete CO2 system

I've never had a problem swapping an empty cylinder for a full one. Sometimes the place I go only has 5# tanks when I go in (mine's a 10), so they write a note on the invoice for next time. 

It is probably worth asking the place you plan to either refill or swap your cylinder.

  >>This guy has a CO2 system that looks to have everything but the gas. It is
  pretty good price, and he has an excellent feedback rating.<<

  As long as you understand what you are getting. The Aqua Medic membrane
  reactor is a passive reactor.  You put it in the path of a water current,
  which pushes the gas thru the membranes. These membranes get dirty very
  easily and fairly quickly.  The other thing you are paying for in this
  system is an empty C02 cylinder.  I believe it is a waist of money to buy an
  empty cannister because in most areas, nobody ever refills an empty
  cylinder. They swap it for one already filled, and they only do it if you
  bought the original cylinder from them. So it would be a good idea to line
  up a place that will fill it before you buy it.  Or better yet buy the
  cylinder locally. The regulator in this system is from Milwaukee, which is a
  good regulator. Just make sure Milwaukee will honor the warranty from this
  ebay seller. Ask him if he is an authorized Milwaukee dealer.
