You want something that's 4 watts or less (preferably), rated for a continuous duty cycle, has 1/8npt ports, and 2 way, normally closed as well.

That one in the pic is 220vac.

110 is the easiest, dc solenoids need a power sourse and low voltage ac solenoids can be difficult to find a cheap power supply for.

So let say I find a solenoid that AC 110 or AC 120 that prewire with the DIN, 1/8 - 2 ports, would that work?

Why the work? There is like.. a million solenoid out there, beside the build quality, would any solenoid work? I don't see why not?

besides the right voltage and the connection port type, the most important of all, make sure the power consumption is low, or it will burn your hand and the heat will shorten the life of that solenoid.

if not be able to find a 4 watts or below, let me know, there are some high quality 6 watts that doesn't burn.

^ I'm still in search for that solenoid, was looking for one that has a DIN LED.

Anywhooo,

I decided to buy the brass CGA320 for 10 bucks, I heard the price wrong and it's actually 30 + 20 for the nickel plated ones. Unless you guys have a better source for 2inch Chrome or Nickel plated, I'm all ears.

You should just spend to $30, and get the one from victor as it is the 2" version. I started off by getting the brass for $10, only to spend more money to upgrade later - why not when you are trying to build something the way you want it to look. I mean you tank is only going to cost $20 a year or whatever depending on the size you have. So what's an extra one time purchase of $20 in the beggining?
