What do I need?

I have decided to try diy co2 using the citric acid/baking soda recipe. I understand that I will get some feedback stating that I should just go pressurized instead. At this time, that is not an option....this is my test to see if I want to invest into full-on co2. Anyway, I have ordered the blue/green kit (D501) off of "evilbay" to get me started.

1) Has anyone tried this system?
2) How has it worked for you?
3) What other items do I need to complete this setup?
4) What specific item do you recommend for "other items"?

Let me add that I will also continue dosing my daily schedule of Metricide while using this diy system.....if that info helps.
