    I've been going over some old sites for CO2 regulator sales and thought it might help anyone make a purchase. Could anyone else add/edit this?

    Basic packages are defined by: selenoid, regulator, and checkvalve.

    Dr. Foster's and Smith is offering their basic set for $90. Nonshipped

    Rex Grigg is offering his basic setup for $140. Shipped

    Beverage Factory.com is offering a commercial grade reg for $37. nonshipped. you might need to find a better regulator for aquarium application.

    Aquatic Co offers their reg with a bubble counter for $109 nonshipped.

    I'm not too familiar with vendors for Victor regulators. There should be some more sites, right?

    ebay for Victor medalist, Fabco needle valves you can get from Dave Gomberg or Rex.
    Rex sells a nice solenoid as well for 30$ and the needle valve and check valves etc.

    Yes, siply ask for a Victor medalist CO2 reg.
    Should be about 60$

    You will have to remove the adaptor the outflow has on the reg. Then add a 1/4 to 1/8" thread. Then you can add the solenoid and then a Tee and several needle valves or a single needle valve.

    Add a check valve after that, then send to a bubble counter and/or a CO2 diffusion device.
