eseasongear.com is usually your cheapest option for the regulator

I was getting excited to hear about the AP electronic regulator cuz I was looking into the same set-up in the future. Not to be the black sheep here, but I just read a lot of bad reviews about miliwaukee regulators being hard to keep stable and leaking. I was also concerned about tank dump too. Keep us posted on ur decision.

I'm sure lots of people don't know how to use Teflon tape correctly lol. The only time I've ever had anything close to a leak was because I didn't tighten it enough. Once I did that it was fine.
I turned the black know to just about completely open and then fine tuned with the brass knob.
But aside from that there are bad reviews on everything you research. Some people just have bad luck or get a dud every once in a while.

The small bit more you will pay for the CarbonDoser over the Milwaukee gets you twice the warranty and a 12volt solenoid. The electronic version looks sweet but way too much money.

I'm looking at that one as well. They also have a internal reactor that I might try. I don't know if anyone has tried that one on here but if you have I would like to know.

I have 2 tanks already so I'm all set there. I can afford to spend a little more on this if I want to, I'm just not sure if it is necessary so I guess that is what I have to figure out.

To Mohican, exactly, I had a tank dump of CO2 with the Milwaukee unit.
