Co2 art regulator


I was going to buy the complete co2 set up from co2 art, for about 100$. But then I saw this

http://www.co2art.co.uk/collections/...magnetic-valve

Its for a 20lb tank on a 55gal. If this will work, I'll just buy everything separate.

I just bought (and set up) their professional dual stage regulator. Got the basic solenoid, and went with the upgraded needle valve. Seems like a great setup so far, and I'm quite sure it will handle almost anything in the future.

They are very very responsive to questions as well, worth taking a look.

Not that 3.5bar would be disappointing, but It would be disappointing that I wouldn't have been able to adjust my rate of co2.

The needle valve serves that purpose. Send them an email and see if it will be precise enough.

Oh, DUH, thx. What do you mean "precise enough"? You have to dumb it down for me, I'm a noob to co2.
