DIY CO2 equipment


I saw this on a Chinese site, thought it's kind of interesting, I know some of your guys tried the first generation...here is the upgraded version. less tubing more organized...don't ask me where to buy this, it's not available in US yet, but I think it will be soon...

Any idea what the threading on the bottles are? If that can fit a normal 2 liter bottle, I'd probably consider it!

If that thing can run 2L bottles and doesn't cost more than $20 I'm getting one. Hopefully fleabay sells it for like 10 bucks.

I'm sure it's more than 20USD, it sells at 118RMB + Shipping roughly 20USD....it's not about how much to set it up. in fact, it cost less in a long run....

That should be around ~$18-$20 right? That shipping is steep though. I guess they intended it for wholesale.

You should post this in the DIY section and see the response lol.

Also, I'd be interested in one, but the shipping costs as much as the actual product.

That's pretty cool. Ever since I gotten a pressurized co2 system, I only use my DIY co2 for backups. But this seems great for a smaller tank
