A flow meter is great in a grow tent or grow room and useless in an aquarium.

Bumping this as I witnessed a friend was using it with no problem. An alternative for cheap regulator, if you are in Budget.

Cheers!!!

My first regulator was a hydro setup. I'm still using it 20 years later! Mine has a Dwyer flow meter as the valve. You just have to turn it way down, no big deal.

It isn't a regulator. It is just a manifold, a needle valve, and a useless flow meter. It isn't very safe to use CO2 on an aquarium without a regulator.

Those regulator with flow meters are made to release a lot more Co2 than our need, thus the flow meter.

It's used in another hobby with fertilizters, high light and RO water. Yes, that right, they use RO water to maintain the soil's PH level.

I have a hydro setup as well. I didn't have an issue with the flow meter either, mine is a pain to adjust but it is steady. I have replaced it with a Fabco which is a lot less frustrating but the flow meter actually worked fine. I got mine for free so it was worth it but I wouldn't recommend it now as it is $100 anyway. It does have a real regulator though, single stage though.
