Craigslist has them in my area. I got a 20# for free and it cost me $20 to exchange it for a cylinder with a good date on it filled with co2.

yes, a check valve would go in the middle of the tubing so water doesnt go back into your system.

Correct. I also run more then one. I run one right below my bubble counter just after the needle valve. Then I run one right at my reactor or before the line goes in the tank.
