    Im hooking up a new solenoid and was wondering if its ok to hook it up inline with the existing co2 setup. Or do i have to hook it up directly to the regulator? If its inline will it blowout the co2 line or is it perfectly safe? Thanks.

    Hi,

    IMO it should be hard piped to the regulator. This can be down line if needed but not in-line with CO2 tubing. It might work if you had compression type fittings for the flexible tubing but not just the barb fittings and would use only on the low pressure side with flex tubing.

    Thanks, i put it inline and used a set of compression fittings and high pressure yellow teflon tape. I also turned it off and put the two fittings into water and did not see any leaks.
