Hi,

Do you have any idea on CO2 splitter ? PFB one item I was thinking to buy. Can it be fitted with PU pipe ( rubber pipe used as air hose in aqua hobby ) ? I meant input and output of splitter will be PU pipes. If you have exp or have used a better splitter then please share your exp and help me with this.

I use co2 splitters on a number of my tanks. i would not fit it with any kind of rubber pipe. the co2 under pressure will find a way out of rubber, or at whatever kind of fittings you out on it.

Thanks , your advise is really helpful. PFB link of the CO2 set up which I am using.

Do you think this CO2 splitter ( http://www.amazon.com/Yosoo-Splitter-Regulator-Needle-Cylinder/dp/B01F8KA8B2/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1465227223&sr=8-12&keywords=co2+splitter ) can be fitted in this regulator ??

If not then can you share a link of a splitter which I can use in my set up ? Will be waiting for your reply.

Looks like your CO2 system runs on a standard CGA 320 thread. I can't find any infomation at all on your amazon link as to the type of thread supported by that CO2 splitter. Either way you will want something to fit that standard CGA 320 Thread.

No we do not carry CO2 manifolds at the shop. We very rarely get asked about them so were never worth stocking. The manifolds that I use screw directly into the solenoid like this one from GLA...

The one you linked off amazon may be fine and work the same as that GLA one I linked. I just can't find any information about it on that amazon link. It says on there that there is no need to modify the regulator. Plus you will need to make sure and do research your CO2 system to make sure it works like a standard co2 tank and will be able to take a manifold in the first place.

The needle valves on the GLA manifold that Jakub linked allows for more precise control over the bubble rate than the manifold originally linked in this thread. However, you can always add a needle valve down the line and even next to the tank. The smaller the tank, the more precise your needle valve will need to be. I attach the manifold straight into the CO2 Regulator body just past the gauges. I then place the solenoid in line with one of the outputs from the manifold. That way, you can individually control CO2 input to multiple sources.
