    Lightbulb Anyone know how to add a Solenoid to CO2 regulator?

    Hi fellow SCAPErs! Sorry.. i'm kind of a newbie still. I've had my tank for about 6 months. My friend was the one who recommended me the CO2 regulator brand, but didn't realize it didn't have a solenoid until later. He forgot how much of a hassle it is when there isn't a solenoid.. Anyways long story short, I I'm getting pretty tired of turning on/off my CO2 regulator and it becomes kind of difficult cause now I started school and have work. So .. it's hard to get the timing right sometimes..
    I was wondering if anyone on here is familiar with installing a solenoid to a CO2 regulator?? I would happily pay for the services because I really don't know how.. and don't wanna mess with the CO2 too much cus it scares me quite frankly when it makes loud sounds LOL.

    I have the Tunzee CO2 regulator that I bought for $110 or something from marinedepot.com

    Let me know please and thank you! Or if you guys have any really thorough and good videos and solenoid recommendations.. I guess I can attempt to try. IMG_9844.jpg

    I have got a a regulator + solenoid kit from GLA as a second hand kit, but know CO2 can be pretty complicated when you're just starting with high-tech tanks. The thing that helped me the most is honestly YouTube--even when reading forums I found discussions on CO2 complicated because I couldn't picture the setup. I'd do a google search for CO2 solenoids and then use YouTube to fill the gaps. If you still have specific questions, jump on SCAPE.

    This is the easiest (and most expensive) way to do it.

    There are a couple of tunze co2 regulators, but this solenoid has a pretty universal connection.
