    Definitely 2 different types. I used to work for co2art there are 2 flow values one is higher than the other, both valves look identical, Including the numbers.
    But if they do the job then happy days!

    Look like co2art has another company call aquabeat. Some products are the same but regulator is defferent though

    RS are great too, ordered mine Sunday arrived two days later fitted in 5mins. Just need to make sure you get the right size of the outlet from the solenoid valve as they vary. I used vernier caliper to measure the thread diameter found the data sheet then found a M5 nut which fitted the broken fitting so was confident to order the fitting. Plus was the same part number too. Andy Thurston might now what the different sizes the soleniod valves use.

    Most aquatic regs and solenoid's have 1/8 NPT threads, you can also buy a reducer to get from 1/8NPT to M5 should you wish to use the SMC valves

    Cheers for the info- take it that most solenoids have an input male 1/8 NPT

    Yes this is true for most but if you buy, for example, a Burkurt 6013 like what I use on my regulator and bought in Europe then that will have 1/8G or 1/4G ports which is a BSP and it is very similar but different to the American NPT

    Have people seen that their https://www.co2regulator.eu/ website now has actual details, prices and pictures of the new reg rather than just teasers, shame their main website still seems to be not taking orders or have any info on it though.

    How are the SMC needle valves after a few years? I mean the type in the photos discussed here. Not the metal bodied AS1000 or 2000s.

    I can vouch for the UNreliability of the cheap Chinese made copies with blue and black bodies. Almost killed my entire tank within just a few months of use.
