[APD] Re: Needle Valve / Metering Valve for CO2
Way back on February 12th, I posted a question for the technical gurus on
CO2 equipment. Not one person seemed to notice, as I never got any
responses. Either all of the knowledgable people had left the list, or I was
being ignored. (the title of the message was "Needle Valve / Metering Valve
Then, low and behold, Chris Hott expressed his frustration in finding a
needle/metering valve, and he was getting answers. Hmmmm, maybe I ought to
take my new dual stage CO2 regulator and go play in another sandbox.....
But all kidding aside, I really would like some input.
I'll be moving in a few months and want to be able to have one CO2 cylinder
serve a number of tanks. I'll need a manifold to distribute the gas. As I
said in my earlier post:
Aquabotanic sells a 4Plex Manifold which apparently has built-in needle
valves. Could this be used down-stream from a higher quality metering valve
to distribute CO2 to multiple aquariums? Or would I need separate metering
valves for each additional aquarium?
So, what do you think? How good are the built in needle valves in this
manifold? Or am I going to have to spring for separate Nupro/Hoke/Parker
