 Hello  all!
 
 I'm  considering  buying  this  regulator  on  ebay  that  has  a  thread  gauge  of  22mm  and  I  want  to  know  if  it  is  compatible  with  locally  available  cylinders.  I  have  listed  two  images  for  comparison.  The  first  from  Kolkata  aquarist,  implying  successful  use  in  the  country  and  the  second  of  the  product.  Visually  they  seem  to  be  the  same  except  the  KAC  one  is  mounted  sideways  for  some  reason.
 
 Here  is  the  product:
 
 http://www.ebay.com/itm/280998667827?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
 
 I  was  on  kolkata  aquarists  and  noticed  the  mods  picture  of  a  similar  regulator  in  use:
 
 
 
 The  regulator  on  ebay:
 
 
 So  judging  by  that  I  am  inclined  to  believe  that  things  should  work  out  but  I  would  like  to  be  sure  as  its  a  lot  of  money  to  be  wasted  if  anything  were  to  go  wrong.
 
 So,  conclusively  would  this  work?  I  plan  on  buy  from  'metro'  in  Mumbai.

 The  regulator  could  be  used  for  the  cylinders  available  locally.
 
 The  first  image  is  the  refurbished  co2  cylinder  and  hence  you  see  that  the  regulator  is  mounted  horizontally.  The  cylinder  which  most  of  the  hobbyist  use  is  the  refurbished  cylinder  and  it  would  have  the  open/shut  valve  on  top  and  the  outlet  horizontally  placed.
 
 The  second  image  is  the  branded  aquarium  co2  cylinder  which  comes  with  the  regulator  fixed  in  the  cylinder.  
 
 For  what  capacity  cylinder  are  you  planning  to  use  this  kind  regulator.  I  wouldnt  suggest  this  regulator  for  a  cylinder  larger  than  3.5kg  cylinder.  This  would  be  optimum  for  2kg  and  lesser  capacity  cylinder  unless  you  know  the  exact  make  of  the  regulator.

 Thank  you  sir!  That's  concise  and  very  well  explained!  Due  to  budget  reasons  mainly  I  intend  to  limit  myself  to  a  1  kg  cylinder  so  I  think  I  should  be  good!  You're  right,  with  Chinese  stuff,  its  best  not  to  discover  their  limit  when  were  talking  kilos  of  pressure!

 Hi  Kenshi64,
 Wait  before  investing.  You  opted  rightly  for  Metro  to  source  a  cylinder  but  for  Regulator  there  are  two  choices-  either  get  it  customized  or  get  local  branded(example-  Eagle)  /  chinese(example-  Yamato)
 
 The  second  image  is  somewhere  similar  to  ISTA  Aluminium  Cylinder,  its  way  different  Regulator  &  won't  fix  to  the  Refurbished  one  you  are  going  to  get  it  from  Metro
 
 There's  wholesale  market  for  Regulators  &  cylinder  accessories  in  Mohammad  Ali  Road(Map  on  Google)  or  you  can  source  it  from  Nautilus  Aquasystem,  Bandra....obviously  for  more  bucks  !!
 
 If  you  can  wait  we  will  have  "Mumbai  Aquarist  Meet"  in  next  month  on  5th  January(MAM  conducts  on  1st  Sunday  of  every  month)  so  you  may  able  catch  more  ideas  from  Fellow  hobbyists  &  then  can  finalize  decision.
 
 If  not  kindly  get  in  touch  with  some  following  hobbyists  in  Mumbai  who  own  CO2  setup-
 
 Sunny_2K_99(Santosh)
 
 Mortis(Nirant)
 
 jjaaxx44(Abhishek)
 
 Also  there  are  few  more  guys  who  deals  in  CO2  cylinder-

 Yes  you're  right  about  the  aluminium  part  of  the  regulator  on  ebay,  might  be  incompatible.   So  after  much  reading,  I  really  haven't  moved  too  forward  with  this  plan,  a  cylinder  can  be  bought  from  metro  but  does  he  know  what  he's  doing?  There's  some  tubing  in  refurbished  co2  cylinders  that  is  supposed  to  be  removed-  how  do  I  check  this?  I've  already  read  that  I  must  only  buy  cylinders  that  hold  the  co2  as  a  liquid.
 
 Now  about  regulators  I've  read  that  single  gauge  regulator  can  lead  to  something  called  'end  of  tank  dumping'  so  I'm  all  worked  up  on  what  to  do  :/
 
 Called  up  the  Govandi  person,  he  range  starts  at  3.5  for  a  2kg,  apparently  1  kg  only  exists  in  the  refurbished  realm.
 
 I  won't  be  able  to  make  it,  no  time  with  college;  thanks  for  the  invite  however!  :)
 
 Now  about  Mohammed  Ali  road,  I  had  no  idea  will  go  and  have  a  look,  it's  close  to  Masjid,  will  ask  my  friends  for  better  directions.  But  buying  from  locals  without  them  knowing  I  want  it  for  an  aquarium  will  lead  to  miscommunications  no?  I  will  need  to  buy  a  reg  and  a  needle  valve  separately  then.  Complications  that  could  lead  to  a  lot  of  wasted  money  :/
 
 So  conclusively  can  someone  vouch  for  some  regulator  that  swear  by?  The  likes  of  trustworthy  local  makes  like  ESAB-  I  really  am  just  beginning  to  gather  knowledge  on  the  matter  so  do  excuse  any  silly  confusions.
