Ok. I will opt a 3kg.

Hi I'm also planning to upgrade to pressurised system, did you bought the cylinder?
I've done the enquiry they said you can also get this from "Aquarium Home - Laxmi Nagar" as they buy in bulk.
Thanks & Regards

In the search of good quality co2 cylinder, I found the recommended option of Luxfer aluminium cylinder.
The best price quoted by the supplier is Rs. 3250 + tax (for 2KG model). As, I have not dealt with pressurised setup before, so I want to know, whether it is a good deal?
What is the suggested regulator name, brand, I should opt for. I heard, Chawri bazar is the best place for buying regulators (Shop name - Weild Guru), Any experience or, recommendation?



Luxfer is a international brand, and I have been using it for the last few years.
There Unit is in faridabad. Whom did you talk to? There prices may be high, but the quality and look is apt for any setup.
Go for a branded regulator, Local regulator can be ok,still...Mine is ESAB.



Somen da.. Even i am trying to get sn Esab regulator.. can u gimme the contact from where I can get it from.. price. I want to include solenoid also to control over photoperiod. .. If i want to supply co2 to two tanks.. should i get a splitter?

I want to get idea of getting esap regulator with solenoid and splitter.

I have purchased Splitter from EBAY @ 2900/-(photo given). It can control six tanks at a time.It is a very good product and you can easily regulate the CO2 flow.

Regarding Esab regulator(photo given) I have purchased a 2 stage dual gauge regulator,which is costly at I got it around 4842/- from a faridabad dealer.
You can google at get the DURA CO2 of esab.
I can say that it is a very high quality regulator.
Initially I had a Yamato regulator and I use to fill co2 after 3-4 months(2 tanks operating), after esab I have filled it in April and still it is giving out CO2.So may be the local ones, how good it is must have been leaking some co2 from its regulator too. The make of Esab must be in such a way that leakage from the regulator is almost impossible.

What about single stage Esab regulator ICO 32B. Any major difference between dual and single stage regulator in terms of our application?
