Description

The regulator is designed to reduce the high pressure inside of a CO2 cylinder to a lower, usable pressure that can be utilised for aquaria.

During photosynthesis, plants use carbon dioxide and water, combined with light energy, to produce oxygen and sugars. However, during dark hours, plants stop photosynthesising and converting CO2 to O2, and therefore it is not advised to add CO2 to the aquarium as levels may rise to the point where is causes distress to your fish. The in-built solenoid magnetic valve enables you to configure the required times for CO2 release, for example, configuring it 'on' during the 'lights on' and 'off' during 'lights out' hours. This can be achieved with a mains timer plug or pH controller. You can also choose to upgrade to a 12v DC solenoid (mains transformer included), which provides safe, low temperature, and guaranteed no noise operation.

Instructions

  • Tighten nut to CO2 cylinder or adapter using appropriate sized wrench or spanner (do not attempt to hand-tighten).
  • Fully open the needle valve by turning anti-clockwise, and switch the solenoid on. This will reduce the initial pressure surge on the pressure gauges when the CO2 cylinder valve is opened.
  • Open flow of CO2 on the cylinder.
  • Turn solenoid off and close needle valve by turning fully anti-clockwise.
  • Connect your bubble counter or tubing to the regulator.
  • Turn solenoid on and begin flow of CO2 by turning the needle valve anti-clockwise.
  • Allow a couple of minutes for pressure to build in the tubing and diffuser.
  • Adjust needle valve until desired bubble rate is achieved.
