Here's another one I put together using two Fabco NV. If you want inexpensive fittings go to your local hardware store or use eBay.

P.S> do a search on youtube for " Custom Build Regulator for Aquarium CO2 Systems", there is a good video that will give you a better visual of putting these things together.
Also the very first post on page 1 of this thread.

That's what I thought, but wasn't sure if I could just split it off one. Thanks for the info on that.
Could I build it just for one tank, and add on the additional later? It doesn't seem like building this is a one and done type of deal correct.

A few post above #`s 666 & 667 are pictures of one example that illustrate how it can be done.

Thanks for all the information, I've decided to pull the trigger and start buying parts to put a pressurized system together. I have a few questions before I start this journey.
Based on page one
I'm picking up
JBJ bubble counter (?)
my question is, how do I know what fittings and check valve to purchase? Do I need to have a design in place before I get the fittings I need? I just want a simple set up that works. I don't need fancy or flashy, just something that works like it should. I've never messed with anything like this, so this is new territory for me.
Is there a way I could build this to run 2 tanks at the same time. I have a double stack stand with a 55g on top and a 10g below. I would like to use this to run both tanks. Do I just use a splitter after the bubble counter to each tank?

The fittings will be replaced with SS. The bubble counters will be inline. I'll be adding two 90 degree elbows at the end of the NV so that the connection for the tubing is downward or sideways depending on how the elbows fit.

Alright, here is my plan for my HPT 500. As of now, it has brass swagelok fittings. I am thinking of using all SS. Let me know what you guys think.

Yes brasso will work.

|FlyingHellFish||^ How that is a unique design! I haven't seen that type of connection on a Victor. What you use to make it so shinny? Basso?|

This is my assembly for the VTS450.
