CO2 tank outside fridge - regualtor inside fridge?
 
Is this possible? I have a dual pressure reg coming and I'd rather not have to have multiple lines coming going into the fridge if the reg is outside.

But what kind if coupler would I need? to allow this?

I'd rather not put a 20lb CO2 tank in the fridge since this will eliminate one more corney I can fit.

Thanks all.

Is this what I would need? $70 shipped? Damn.

I'd suspect that it's going to be most cost effective to put two Co2 lines into the fridge and then build your manifold inside to split it more if you need.

Yeah I think you're right about that one.

Ummm .... why not just have one line going in from the main regulator to a secondary regulator mounted inside the fridge if you're worried about having serveral different pressures.

Because the dual presure reg is a single piece not something that can be taken apart as two pieces.

Maybe you could have a second single gauge regulator outside the fridge feeding a dual pressure regulator inside. Keep the outside one at 30psi or so and then dial it down with the regulators inside the fridge.

A single gauge regulator is only around $30, half the price of that high pressure hose you posted earlier.

This is what I did.

I think he means, use a single output regulator, 1 line into the kegerator, then use secondary regs inside, or a manifold, to split the lines on the inside.

return the one you got, or resell it in classifieds?

The problem with your initial idea is that you won't find tubing that can safely handle 800 psi bottle pressure. you'll need a primary regulator as others have already noted.
