Loctite Marine Epoxy?

So I'm putting together my new CO2 reactor and I need some glue to hold the air valve to the main reactor. I picked this stuff up as I saw marine epoxy is what everyone recommends but it specifically says NOT FOR AQUARIUM USE on the label. Has anyone else tried it or should I go find some other marine epoxy to use?

If it specifically stated not for aquarium use, I think it best to use something else. OR Call the company and see WHY it says not for aquarium use. It may just be that they don't want to deal with anything should it say it was safe ans some one person out of a million had an issue.
Is the part with the epoxy going to be submerged? Or is water just passing it? That may or may not make a difference. A call can't hurt. Better to be safe than sorry - right?
