Ca reactor regulator

Well seeing i lost 200 psi over night i think there is a leak in the regulator somewhere. I'm going to buy a new one because the one i recieved is old and was hand me down. Does anyone have a suggestion as far as regulator w/solenoid?

Check out the one from aquarium plants. It costs a little more but comes with 3 yr warranty, stays adjusted and easy to use. Bought mine from recommendations from others here and I`m glad I did.

I second the one from aquarium plants. Definitely worth the price differential. Also, make sure you don't have a leak at a connection point.

i don't need the built in bubble counter as my CA reactor has one on it, does it matter that it will have two?

Wont hurt anything two have 2. I have one in the regulator and one in my Geo unit also. Its nice to see how much is actually being released by the regulator and then adjust between the two.
