It really depends on what you're trying to accomplish though.

This test is to make sure the canister is structurally sound and can withstand the forces exerted by a pressurized gas. A tank that fails can have lethal consequences.

Hydro tests are every 5 years as well and you'll need to do hydro tests on any pressurized Co2 canister that you use.

|Matt47890||Actually I don't want this one lol I'd need to do hydrotests lol|

Can I use something like this
|11-05-2014 02:22 AM|
I made this with a ASA, FMF10BK Deltrol and the Watts needle valve ganged together.
I tried it with just the Deltrol valve and I wasn't able to adjust the bubble rate. With both of them together I can just barely do it.
I think folks are having troubles with the bubble rate slowing down for this reason: They crack the CO2 open which creates lots of back pressure, then they turn down the valve until they get the correct rate. Then as the back pressure is released the bubble rate slows down.
So what I do is get the bubble rate slower than I want... then adjust the rate up instead of adjusting it down.
I adjust the valve by tapping on it with something.... just light little taps and wait a bit to see if it changed...

One post that I saw in this thread (that also didn't receive any replies) suggested placing your thumb over the output of the tubing with the system up and running. This will force the Co2 out of any leaks that otherwise don't make themselves apparent.
I set my system up and didn't see any leaks but remembered that suggestion. Once I did that I found a good-sized leak from the compression nut.

Setup not working just right
i setup this and its great, but when i get the needle valve where i want it , it slows after a bit till nothing is really coming out. I submerged the threads all in water and found no leaks in anything.So im wondering if a bubble counter will fix this. I just want to set it at a constant rate so i dont have to fiddle with it all the time!!!!!
i just have the asa valve with a needle valve on a glass diffuser

|mkbojangles||I did this I tested for no leaks but when I let out the needle valve it does the rate I want but then falls off after a short time ... What do I need to make sure it stays constant|
