It can really very. It all depends on the cost of the parts. Probably anywhere between $150 and $250. Maybe less. A really cheap custom isn't really any better than what's available commercially for...

The carbonic acid in the co2 that changes the ph isn't going to affect your livestock. You are much more likely to suffocate your stuff that swims than make them uncomfortable by changing the ph.

It sounds like you've bought an old gla regulator. And it also sounds like the check valve broke off at the fabco. All you really need to do there is get the broken part out. It should just unscrew...

It kinda depends on what deals you can find. Figure roughly 50 bucks for changing the solenoid. The parts I mentioned should only set you back about 30-40.

Here's what I would do.

Find a 10-32 manifold on that auction site. They have all sorts styles. I'd go with the long, square black type. You'll probably have to go with a 5 out put version though...

Well, it's pretty easy but it's going to depend on what needle valves you want to use. You can do it a few ways.

One way would be to run a soft line to a manifold right out of your current set up....

Ya. That solenoid isn't going to work unless you want to run all of the out puts in-line. Which is fine.
