    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 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...
  4. 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...

    Ive got a couple fisher scientific dual stage regulators with clippard mme-2QDS 110V solenoids, needle valve, and fittings. The solenoids are brand new and already wired up. These were built for people locally but fell through. One of the high pressure gauges was replaced on one of the...
    I am looking for someone selling a Clippard mouse solenoid already wired. I would prefer it including the 15490-2 manifold, but it is not required. Thanks! Ben

    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...

    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...
