This customer purchased the item at our site.
Seems to be a bit of misinformation (and complaints) on this product if you search it on Google. I think an older version of this kit shipped without the adapter from other retailers.

The tread type on the regulator itself is W22, which will NOT fit a North American standard CGA320 bottle (such as for beverage carbonation systems) with a valve such as https://www.reefsupplies.ca/online-store/5-lb.-CO2-Cylinder-Empty.html or a painball pin type bottle. To be clear it may thread, but will NOT seal correctly.

However the INCLUDED adapter works on BOTH North American standard CGA320 bottles AND pin type paintball bottles (same thread, different point of seal and pin valve) . No additional adapter purchase is required. THIS IS A VERY NICE COMPLETE KIT. Kit also came with a check valve, which is not listed in the description.

An additional adapter would be required to use disposable type CO2 bottles, but these are usually available where they are sold. I ran through two disposable 3.2 oz bottles while waiting for my 5 lb to be filled.


This video shows it being installed without the adapter. I believe this installation is incorrect. It will thread and tighten but does not seal correctly! It looks like he has pressed the regulators stainless into the soft brass of the tank valve to achieve a seal instead of sealing on the intended gasket! You can see how many turns he has left on the valve, should only be 1, not 3, the post has bottomed out on valve. Not a long term solution! Adapter seals correctly on gasket. USE PROVIDED ADAPTER.

Anyway, highly recommend, but make sure you set it up correctly. Will likely purchase a second one.

Advantages: - Self regulating, great for beginners. No valve to bump.

- 12V solenoid stays cool. Should have long service life.

- Innovative bubble counter/solenoid combined unit, seems like less clutter and potentially less likely to be broken.

- Easy adjustment of needle valve, very smooth and accurate.

- Needle valve only adjustable with screwdriver in recessed screw, no accidental bumps changing your CO2 output.

- Fairly quiet solenoid, LED indicates open.

Disadvantages: -Included precision screwdriver too small to generate enough torque to turn needle valve especially towards lower end of bubble count (1 bubble/sec). Valve is a bit stiff which is good, shouldn't move on its own. Make sure you have a small screwdriver with a decent handle.

-Found the AC adapter to be odd shape, does not play well with my timer and power strip. Sticks out a little too far to go into the timer and clear the power bar. Consider ordering a replacement AC adapter or using a short extension cord.

-High pressure gauge doesn't seem to be very accurate, mine claims 500 psi in full tank, should be around 820 psi at room temp. Not really important, as soon as needle starts to drop its time to refill.

Easy to setup and dial in.

Advantages: DC solinoid, it should last longer than AC but time will tell.
