    I know what one is. How does it happen and how do you prevent it?
    Also I won't be using a ph controller.

    a pH controller seems to be the only option. i don't use the controller for other risk reasons, but it really is beneficial for this purpose.

    i had a co2 dump about 3 weeks ago with fish gasping hard. I just retuned the settings on the needle valve and pressure to get it back to normal. has worked fine since.

    If your co2 outflow is set to 20lbs and the tank pressure goes to 19 lbs. Is that when you get co2 dump?

    A needle valve set without a pH controller prevents end of tank dumps.

    I've enevr had a gas tank dump using needle valves, only if you use the regulator with disc methods as the control without a needle valve.
