Default Dual product regulator necessary?

I just purchased a used kegerator that has a dual tower. I would like to run two kegs off the same co2 bottle. Do I need a regulator that can be set at different pressures? I'm sure over time I'll have a variety of different beers hooked up. Thanks.

No you can just split it,but if you want force carb one keg while you have another on tap it's nice to have a second regulator.

Do different styles of beers need different pressures when on tap?

You will be ok with one with like styles, out of curiosity you did not happen to buy your kegorator recently from a guy in Delaware?

One could certainly conjure up two different styles far apart on the CO2 volume scale that ideally would benefit with different serving pressures. For instance, an effervescent German weizen (as high as 5 volumes) verses a nearly still English cask ale (as low as 1.5 volumes) would certainly push the envelope...

Cheers!
