First post so go easy on me. It seems like taking one of these
4 way air manifolds (they sell other sizes
) and combining it with 6 of these
1/2 ball valve to 1/4 barb adapters (why not use all valves they are cheap) would yield a $33.21 distributor which is about $25 less then what most places seem to want. Of course this setup would lack check valves but it seems like a reasonable trade off. Just an FYI takes about 2 weeks to get parts from this seller.
Of course if you truly want to be cheap you could just buy a lot
of stainless steel 1/4 barbed tees and get a similar end result for $6.
What are your thoughts? What are people using for lower cost CO2 distributors?
