I have purchased the Dupla Armatur PRO Valve from Planted Tanks about a month ago, and was impressed with the quality of the unit.

After taking from the box I was surprised at the quality of the kit, very solid and very easy to use. What is amazing on it is that you can set the exact amount of bubble per minute, using the large dial, then you can fine tune using the small dial.

Decided to invest on the Dupla Solenoid as well. It has to be one of the best buys I have made.

It is silent in running, and solidly built. Very easy to connect to the Dupla Armatur PRO, and best of all, the power cable runs strait from the mains into the unit, no need for bulky adapter as most solenoids have.

I am regular user of CO2 valves, and up till now was using another famous brand, but the Dupla kit has to be the best I have seen both for ease of use and for quality of the material.

If you are looking for a CO2 Valve and Solenoid you will not find a better deal anywhere else, I can assure you of it.

We have not seen much Dupla products since the late 1990's here in the USA.
Rea Sea bought them out a no# of years back I recall.
The old owner of Dupla moved to Oz last I heard.

You may get good kit in the US, especially with some of the built to order valves and solenoids, but in the UK this was the best I have found.

Maybe Dupla is making a comeback?

With a discount code, the CO2 valve cost me £118 with free delivery.

The unit as I am using it:

I think that Dupla is whole owned by the original owners... it has a parent company called DOHSE who are whole German and they now own ZOLUX and HOBBY which are French and German respectively.

It seems that they are now making a comeback in Europe, probably trying to claw back the market from JBL. :)
