Reliable easy to use Co2 regulator.


Was using a Milwaukee regulator it dumped all my Co2 twice in a few hours. Ended up killing my HC. All my plants obviously responded well to Co2 while it lasted and I would like to add it again.

There are various commercially available solutions that are available to you.

If you are in no rush, and are willing to do a bit of reading, then I highly suggest you try to DIY a pressurized CO2 system yourself, as not only will you learn a lot, but you will also be able to build a quality system for much cheaper (or for the same price as a commercially available system, with much higher quality parts).

For more information, please take a look at my primer to pressurized CO2 (linked in my signature below).

Some have better parts. Some are dual stage as opposed to single stage where the PSI is reduced in 2 steps rather than 1. Some look fancier, some have better needle valves, a lot can be different.
