I thought I'd jump in on this thread as I just finished my first DIY regulator.

I was a little impatient on the regulator but I got one that looks to be in great shape. Post body kit compliments of @Bettatail

I ended up buying some sleeving and shrink wrapping the power cord to give it a bit more finished look. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

You should shrink wrap the connectors too to keep the water out. Im setting up a new tank with a new reg. Probably going to start building soon.

Testing on this concoa 432 fail, there is a leak on the first stage, need to open it and replace the diaphragm washer......





The APtech looks good, tested and works well, I think it is the best or most expensive stainless steel double stage that I could find.
burkert 2822 solenoid only consumes 0.5 watt with 12V DC power input.

The APtech is definitely the best build ever.
