    Hi guys, I have a 10 gallon that has a co2 system but I'm not very consistent with turning the co2 on and off with my work schedule. I purchased a cheap solenoid to connect to my system a while back (an Fzone) but it broke within 3 days so I returned it. I'm looking for a simple solenoid...

    I replaced my CO2 tank (sodastream) a few days before I went on a 2 week vacation, and have come back to it running slowly and somewhat inconsistently. It was running fine before I left. I walked over to it a minute ago and found no bubbles running and then all of a sudden loads came out...

    I bought an upgrade (diy kit with solenoid and needle valve from diyco2regulator.com) for my Oxyturbo (single stage) regulator. The co2 manifold needs a 1/8"MPT nipple in order to connect to my regulator. I can't figure out what thread size I need on the side of my regulator. It's smaller than...

    I've pulled out all my equipment that was last in use 7 years ago or so. My Clippard solenoid isn't completely shutting off... actually, it may never have really worked as intended. Anyway, what's the standard for solenoids today? Preferably one that won't melt itself from the inside out...
  5. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I'm looking to set up a CO2 system using sodastream bottles (It seems like a good medium between disposable systems and full size systems). Do I need a dual stage regulator to prevent end of tank dump? Single stage ones are much cheaper and was wondering if I could get away with using one but...

    I have done some reading lately on this lovely site and many people have said that the Burkert Solenoid is a good choice for a Co2 setup, and there are others as well. I have also gathered that because of the very very slow flow of the "fluid" we are using, these solenoids have a heat issue...

    Hi, When my solenoid block the CO2 at night, after some hours the drop checker become blue. So it's mean that my co2 level not stable? Or this is normal situation and won't promote algae? My lighting schedule 2pm to 9pm. My co2 schedule from 7am to 9pm. When the light on, the drop checker...

    Picked up a Red Sea CO2 Pro System and want to get a solenoid. Does anyone have any guidance or recommendation on what to purchase? Do I have to get the Red Sea solenoid or can I buy a generic one? Please help.

    I am wanting to get a ph controller but the solenoid I have is normally closed. The one I was looking at is milwaukee MC122. I want it to shut off the gas if the CO2 gets too high. Will this work for my set up?

    For the last 2 months or so my Aquatek solenoid is not closing all the way or something when it shuts off. The CO2 still flows, an it is becoming frustrating. I've gotten nowhere with Aquatek's customer service after I told them I bought the unit in December and I'm well out of the lame 90 day...
