My first post to this list.
I have been pricing systems in Houston, Tx.  I followed the posts on the net 
since Xmas on various homemade systems, Coke bottle and yeast, buying a used 
tank, or even a "coke syrup tank thingy" etc... And i finally decided on a 
"Tetra C02 injection system",  it was $109.  The tank or really bottle is 
small 7ozs.  It costs 3$ there to refill.
I have a 90 gallon tank and the salesman estimated my bottle would last 1-2 
This was 29$ more than buying all the parts tank,regulator used or 
seperately.  It also contained a very nice C02 chamber system that is quite 
attractive compared to what I would have to build.
The salesman told me thou he thought Tetra was discontinueing (sp?) this
