In my mind, you could either order one now as an back-up or one for a newly created aquarium. It's better to be safe than sorry. Right? (Hehehehehehe..... )
That's what I've done. I have a brass and SS solenoid coming with a LED DIN for each one.
From my experience, I know that Bürkert solenoids work well. Their being able to run energized (open) for 24/7 is a big plus, overkill, for our use!
hbosman;52912 said:I am tempted to order one now but, I'm superstitious. If I have a spare, it will never get used. If I don't have a spare, the original is more likely to fail. I'd rather not have an extra solenoid sitting next to my spare Victor dual stage that might not get used either. Will I sell my spare Victor? No way. Because as soon as I sell it, I will need another one and now days it will cost me much more. ;-)
When the Parker dies, I will just run CO2 24/7 until the Burkert comes in. I've run CO2 24/7 for a few years and didn't have any issues.

My 456786 with Viton seals is about 3 years old and I haven't had any trouble with it at all.
Do you have one (or more) on order?inkslinger;53017 said::gw
No I got it!! The Buna seal is better than the Viton seal for CO2 purpose .
