Great Link! The options have my head spinning. I am especially interested in the manifolds as it would allow me to start different tanks on different photo periods without having to tee off and hang even more parts in space.
I believe the one I have ordered in the Diyco2regulator kit is the EV-3M-12 (standard) with a plug attached to the ends of the wires, and matching manifold.

My kit arrived. Turns out the model is the ET-3M-12. It has spade terminals and it comes with a lead connector to adapt from spade to the connection to match the power supply.

Question: the manifold that arrived with the solenoid is the 15490-5 which has two ports. What is the purpose of the two ports? redundancy? All of the multi solenoid manifolds seem to have one port. Would it be a problem running ET-3M-12 solenoids on a single port manifold?
