CO2 tank in basement?
Due to the tight space in the stand below the tank (about 26in), a 10lb cylinder is all that will fit and even it may be tight. Therefore I was thinking about getting a 20lb and running a line through an existing hole in the wall that goes to the basement a floor below and having it down there.
My question is, I have searched and read that regular tubing loses 6% per foot, and though I was planning on CO2 specific tubing, would there be too much loss even in that in the 20-30ft that I would need from the reactor to the regulator? There is an electrical outlet down there for the solenoid so that isn't a problem. I'm thinking I may also save a little on tank refills/exchanges in the long run also by using a larger tank. Can anyone think of any other reasons that I shouldn't do this? Does anyone else have this setup also?
