First Time Pressurized CO2 setup


I want to go pressurized CO2 for a 30 gallon tank. I've never used CO2 in any way shape or form.

When I buy a regulator I want to get the whole thing in one shot: solenoid, bubble counter, check valves, needle valve etc.

I know I want to invest in something good quality, with a warranty, idiot proof as possible, and will hold its value hopefully.

I was looking at the GLA models they seem nice, are they worth it? any suggestions?

Thanks a lot, Nate

I have one from gla . It works great and you can get everything in one place. I think they are worth it if you don't want to build your own.

There are some users (myself, Bettatail, oldpunk78) that also build complete setups for pressurized CO2.

lower cost, there is no marketing expenses.
plus, you get a system that virtually non of the commercially available systems can compete.
