I am in the same situation as Chris, so please keep the CO2 answers on the
list. I have seven tanks in one room and am curious about what to buy and
where to buy it. ?

One question I have wondered about from time to time is the quality of CO2
variable i.e. from a welding supply shop or a soft drink company.

What equipment would be needed to supply seven tanks, the idea of seven
regulators is not real appealing.

Please advise me of the address of suppliers of recomended equipment.

Best wishes to all
