 hey
 
 i  am  using  DIY  CO2,  and  now  i  am  planning  to  move  on  to  pressurized  CO2  for  my  28  gallon  tank.
 
 i  have  2  320  grams  Soda  maker  CO2  cylinders.  are  these  cylinders  usable  for  aquarium  CO2?  also,  how  long  will  a  320  gms  cylinder  last?
 
 also,  where  can  i  get  the  regulator,  needle  valve,  bubble  counter  and  diffuser  in  mumbai  at  good  prices?
 
 also,  do  i  need  a  solenoid  valve?
 
 please  reply
 
 thanks  Smile

 Hi  Polya,
 
 A  friend  of  mine,  Mr.  Sathya  (IAH  id  sathya_b)  used  to  do  that.  No  regulators  etc.,  a  cycle  ball,  the  hose  pipe  used  to  connect  wash  basin  tap  to  main  plumbing  line,  and  with  a  washer.  THe  cycle  ball  is  placed  on  the  pin  of  the  cylinder,  a  washer  above  that  and  the  one  thread  of  the  hose  should  be  tightened.  Other  end  of  the  hose  should  be  glued  without  any  leak,  either  with  silicone  or  m-seal  to  a  regular  CO2  tube,  that  is  connected  to  a  reactor  or  diffuser.  The  appropriate  threading  presses  the  cycle  ball  on  the  pin,  which  releaes  the  CO2.  
 
 Thus  for  3  bps  rate,  his  cylinder  lasted  about  a  month.  
 
 I  tried  the  same,  but  could  not  control  as  effectively.  Did  not  try  much  because  of  laziness.
 
 You  may  please  try.  All  the  best.
 
 Regards

 Soda  makers  were  first  used  in  the  hobby  before  we  got  the  idea  of  fire  extinguishers.  You  have  to  DIY  the  stuff.
 
 Rufus  makes  the  DIY  fitting  for  use  in  the  soda  maker.
 
 I  suggest  you  drop  the  idea  unless  you  can  easily  refill  your  soda  maker  cartridge.  It  is  really  not  worth  the  effort.
 
   No Way

 250  gms  soda  maker  refill  for  Rs.  100/-.  
 
 A  9  kg  fire  extinguisher  refill  for  Rs.  100/-  .  Rs.  200  for  pick  up,  refill  and  drop.
 
 You  guys  have  a  choice  both  on  quantity  and  safety..  Wink

 If  you  really  want  to  stick  on  to  the  Soda  maker  cylinder,  you  can  make  a  call  to  me  as  I  dont  have  a  diagram  to  explain!
 
 And  like  Trevor  told,  that  is  why  I  have  changed  to  regular  CO2  set  up!!!

 after  reading  all  this  and  thinking  a  lot,  i  have  decided  to  drop  the  idea  of  soda  maker  co2  cylinders.  
 
 will  do  it  with  fire  extinguisher  cylinder  :)
 
 i  read  the  thread  about  it,  but  1  thing  i  want  to  know  is,  where  can  i  get  it?  and  what  is  the  approximate  price  of  these  cylinders?

 i  had  asked  the  price  for  the  fire  extinguisher  cylinder  (2  kg)....the  price  quoted  to  me  Rs  2500/-  just  for  the  cylinder  ...and  you  have  many  more  things  to  be  attached  to  that  cylinder  like  co2  regulator....etc..
 
 i  am  currently  using  a  sodamaker  cylinder  with  tap  connector  as  told  by  anadarajkumar  ...but  i  find  it  easy  to  operate  in  affordable  price  ...but  the  small  pain  is  that  you  to  make  refill  trip  once  in  a  month  ...

 The  industry  bulk  price  of  C02  is  between  Rs.  10/-  and  Rs.  14/-  per  Kg  all  over  the  country.  
 
 Its  only  when  our  re-fillers  come  to  know  that  we  are  using  it  for  something  strange  that  the  price  goes  haywire.
 
 The  price  is  of  course  also  dependent  on  quantity  off-loaded..

 Hi,
 
 Even  I  am  planning  to  setup  CO2  using  the  Soda  Cylinder.  A  new  cylinder  costs  500  rs  and  refilling  costs  80rs  (Bangalore).
 
 I  wanted  to  know  what  are  the  other  parts  (adapter,  regulator,  needle  value),  I  need  to  setup  the  Co2.  
 
 Do  I  need  a  regulator  or  only  an  adapter  would  do?  I  am  new  to  this.  So  dont  know  what  are  the  parts  required  to  do  the  setup.  Can  anyone  explain  me  the  required  parts  to  setup  the  co2?
 
 Also  what  parts  should  I  ask  from  the  shop?
