Hi everyone,

As you can see I am VERY new to the forum. I have been trying to research a better replacement to my (inconsistent and now non-functioning) Milwaukee setup that has left me very disappointed and unfortunately many fish dead. I have learned a lot now that I have found the holy grail of planted tank forums, barrreport.com. I have researched the individual components all day and the cost of quality is adding up too fast. I was hoping someone here had an extra setup they no longer needed. Whats a couple years old going to matter when it's meant to last a lifetime right? If you have a fair deal, I am all ears.

Thanks,
Marcus

Check valves can be bought for a dollar and bubble counters are over rated if you can hold the tube underwater. I have a Fabco needle and nipple that fits a clippard solenoid for next to nothing if you cant find one. PM me an offer.

I have most of those items, MarMar. Not assembled and either in new or mint condition. PM me if interested. Some of my parts will work with chad320's too.

After reading so much about what you guys have researched, I decided to go new. Somehow I got hooked on getting specific parts and making my own custom rig. It will be a fun project and the result will be something accurate and reliable. Farewell Milwaukee setup! Thanks for the offer Chad and all of your advice Left C! Thread no longer needed. :)

You have some very nice, first class equipment. Will you post pictures of your build in Anthony's (DarkBlade48's) CO2/regulator sticky?

There are one of two things that you will need. You will either need a vice and a wrench or you will need to know how to lock two wrenches together to remove a very tight piece from the regulator while standing on it. Also, without the vice, you will need to be a contortionist to remove that part with your two locked wrenches. LOL ... hahahah

You should of seen me the first time. I was laughing at myself. Vices rule now!

Oh, I forgot to ask. How much was your Ideal V52-1-12 Vernier handle needle valve?

I will definitely show some pics on Darkblade's thread. Please let me know which piece needs to be removed. I do have a vice but the regulator is being made now so maybe I could tell them to not put the particular part in. Is it the outlet?
