Will This Regulator Work with Paintball Bottles?

Hello everyone,

I just purchased 10 refurbished 9 oz co2 tanks on ebay and was wondering if the waterplant disposable co2 system regulator I already own will work with these bottles? If not, what would I need to purchase to make this work? I've been hearing a lot about on/off valves. Do I need one of those? Below are links to both the 9 oz tanks and disposable co2 system I have.

Thanks so much for your help!

Ben

No, different Thread Size, different design. Paintball Co2 tanks have way higher pressure capacity and that piece you link up there does not have a Burst Disc on it for Safety reasons. Avoid the above if you're going with a Paintball Co2 Tank Setup.



For references.

You will need something like this to work. This is mines.
ASA On/Off Valve, Gauge(Optional), Needle Valve, Tube fitting output line.

also, that needle valve is a water grade one right? can i get a co2 one that won't give out on me one day? what about this one?

i feel like the threads are to big to fit in the valve input slot, but how do i know for sure? i don't see the measurements

How about taking a read on my DIY Paintball Co2 Tank for injectin Co2 tank into aquarium.

The links you linked are all wrong. It wont' work.

I suggest you read that.
