I would also like to know about their solution and its longevity. Also..I would like to know if the bottles could be modified to use yeast mix in both bottles and if it would create to much pressure by limiting the outflow of pressure via the needle valve.

Stumbled on this since i was searching about the pressure building up high using this kit. Why theoretically it wont fail? The pressure was way past the green zone on the gauge just now when i checked it.

There is a thread on it here. I wish I had never bought it. You have to tinker with the solution to get it to last 10 days. I will be next doing a flow control system. Thread here.

My last one. Here is the post :

Today was the last day on the charge of: Was good for 30 days, 2bps for 8 hours a day.<br />
<br />
Bottle A = Citric Acid 400g to 600ml water<br />
Bottle B = Baking Soda 300g to 200ml water<br />
<br />
Lasted 30 days, but.... I was out of town during the last week that it ran so I can not say for sure that it ran for 2bps the whole time during that week. So I am going to restart today using the same ratios and see if I can duplicate this result. Stay tuned if anyone is still interested.
