- Beware! Non Standard Threads! Review by Jim
This is the email response I received inquiring about the threads so I could connect this to my regulator with pipe fittings instead of flimsy tubing:
Non Standard means that the various parts on the MA955 & MA957 are manufactured by us and designed to be used exclusively with our regulator MA957. This is done deliberately to protect against unauthorized adaptation." (Posted on 9/4/2013)
- 1/8"? Review by
I think the specifications refer to the diameter of the tubing, not the size of the threaded parts of the valve. I could not thread it directly onto the pressure valve and I still don't know exactly what size the threads are.
I had to install the solenoid into the run of the air hose line itself and tape it to the side of my co2 tank with electrical tape. The nuts which clamp down over the ends of the air hose after it is fit over the nozzle do seem to make a secure fit.
Maybe the brief product description could somehow be amended to include thread sizes. Maybe its just that everyone but me knows what 1/8" FTP implies.
The good news is that CO2 doesn't seem to be leaking and it stops bubbling up through the tank whenever the lights go off. Now all I have to do is cut back on my lighting until all the green algae goes away:) (Posted on 1/31/2010)
