From there, it depends on the other parts you have (i.e. the solenoids I use are 1/8" female NPT, so I need to use a reducer from 1/4" down to 1/8", etc). These parts can usually be found at your local hardware store.

Other considerations when choosing a regulator:

Dual stage or single stage?
One gauge or two?
Chrome plated, brass or stainless steel (all work for our purposes; this is more aesthetics)
Maximum delivery pressure?

And of course,

Price?

uhhhhh I'll just let people give me links lmao, way to much to take into consideration and NONE of that information is on ebay
