Re:Chemical CO2 Systems

Melissa asked in relation to the Ceomat CO2 system

I don't know about your first few questions but I doubt it would be
very cost effective.  I see a new system sells for about $130. You
should be able to buy a 5lb CO2 bottle, regulator and needle valve for
about the same amount of money. The real cost issue is in the refills.
As I understand it one of the Ceomat refills is equal to a 250g
bottle. That means one refill of a 5lb bottle would equal 9 of the
Ceomat refills.  I pay $5 to refill by 5lb bottle - the Ceomat refills
are about $6 each.
