    Hey guys just wondering on your pressurized Co2 systems how much outlet pressure do you generally use, I only ask because I'm looking at two different regulators, one with an outlet pressure of 30 PSI and one with 60PSI. Would 30 PSI be enough even for a larger tank (say around 120 gallons)? or should I spent a bit more for the 60 PSI output? Just so you know the regulators are:

    1.)BOC Gases BGT-270-15-320-4F General Purpose Regulator Max inlet: 3000 PSI Fitting # CGA-320V, Output 30psi, 200Kpa

    2.)the Victor HTP 272B, max inlet 3000psi, CGA 320, output 60 PSI (the more expensive regulator)

    Go with the victor. You've got more options as to what kind of diffuser you can use. Some of the atomizers out there need almost 40 to crack open. If you only see yourself going with a reactor or glass diffuser the boc will be fine.
