Any drop checker works the reliability really comes into play with the solution.

I mean its an inverted bell with a section that holds water!

Most any drop checker will work the same, one thing to note with aquamagic, they are located in china(or somewhere near there) and shipping will take quite a while.

Ive got some blown glass and some up Aqua. The glass ones are a little pain to fill and harder to read. While the up Aqua ones are really easy to read and use and as good as any out there.

Thanks for the tips everyone. I will be picking one up today.

I started my DIY Paintball Co2 system yesterday and I can't keep a steady bps, any tips there?

Also, I also hear a chirping sound coming from the hose. It doesn't sounds like it coming from the tank or anything directly attached. Rather sounds like its comming from the hose just before it enters the tank. Any tips there?

chirping sound sounds like a leak. and you will have a hard time getting a consistant bubblecount unless your running a pb setup like the gla v2 one im running, there are also others like it out there. What does yours consist of?

Are you using a ceramic diffuser if so the chirping sound is from the C02 being forced through it.

I'm using a glass diffuser but I'm surprised the sounds carries underwater like that. I refilled the co2 tank today and seems to be more constant now.
