I was out of the hobby for about 5-6 years and decided to restart it again during this lock down. I had retained most of the hardware when I stopped 5 year ago.
After setting up the tank, thought of going in for CO2 injection for the few plants that I have.
The CO2 tank and the CO2 regulator are the same which I had retained and used 6 years ago. Though the CO2 regulator worked OK for a day or two, I notice issues now.
The output pressure starts to go up on the Output Gauge as soon as I open the cylinder, even without any turning of the output control knob. Do you think the regulator has gone defective due to non use from past 6 years ?!
Any pointers ?
Since it's a non popular regulator, if it cannot be easily repaired, I would prefer buying a new regulator. Any suggestions for a good quality CO2 regulator, and where I can buy the same and approx cost for the same ? It was ESAB regulators which were popular when I was in the hobby 6 years ago. Don't know which ones are good now, so thought of asking you fellow planted tank enthusiasts.
Also, Where do Bangalore planted tank enthusiast's get their CO2 filled ?! I stay near K R Puram - ByappanaHalli Metro station area. Any places nearby ?
( I can get the regulator fitted and my cylinder checked there ). Any pointers and guidance will be really helpful to me who is trying to get back into the planted tank hobby ?!
