But with this solenoid there is a risk of "gas strike" when it turn ON after the night?
Or it's 100% safe? In russians forums they say that solenoid must be upgraded to prevent gas strike.

When too much of CO2 acumulated over the night and when solenoid open valve alll the gas go to the tank... Something like that...

I cannot find any cheap 110V solenoid on ebay, everything is for 220-240V
Cheaper that I found is Milwaukee Solenoid Valva for 48$...
