We are proud to introduce the newest advancement to our custom regulators, our advanced, built-in CO2 bubble counter, now standard on all of our custom built CO2 regulators.
Out with the old brass bubble counter, and in with the new, sleek GLA bubble counter. Designed with built-in filtration and a no-fail check valve; crafted of CNC aluminum with a modern, slender appearance.
We have also increased the warranty coverage of our regulators to three (3) years.
Check out our complete lineup of custom CO2 regulators and CO2 systems and take control of your CO2. We are confident that our regulators will take you to the highest standard in design, control, performance & reliability, with a team of CO2 experts standing behind our products. Let us know if you have any questions, we are always here to help.
Customize your CO2 regulator or CO2 system by adding a manifold. We can build you a two to six-way manifold, or other custom manifold based on your specific needs. Just let us know and we will make it happen.
Manifolds are built onto the regulator and can supply CO2 to up to six aquariums or more, with one regulator and one CO2 cylinder. It’s a great way to save money if you have a multi-aquarium household.
If you don’t see what you need on our website, then contact us, and we can create a special order CO2 system for you. Pictured below with our brand new GLA bubble counters, is a quadruple manifold assembly on a dual-stage Ultimate CO2 regulator, it’s really beautiful!
Also pictured below, a special order we designed with an Ultimate CO2 Regulator and three-way manifold, which additionally included three separate solenoid valves for every bubble counter and needle valve assembly.
At GLA, our design team is always working hard to ensure that we provide our customers the best possible CO2 equipment. After months of planning, our custom CO2 regulators will soon be even better! We felt that it was a great time to redesign the standard CO2 bubble counter, and have created a brand new, advanced bubble counter to take our regulators to a new standard of design and function. We are expecting our new CO2 bubble counters to arrive in the next couple of weeks.
Upon arrival, all of our custom built CO2 regulators will be upgraded to the new design. We will release photos of our CO2 regulators featuring the brand new bubble counters soon! All CO2 regulator and system orders placed, as of early February 2013, will be shipped out in approximately 7-10 business days with our newest upgraded, built-in CO2 bubble counters. Please feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions. We are happy to help.
Throw out your last disposable CO2 cylinder, and move forward with the V3. No more need for costly, disposable cartridges. This tiny, revolutionary regulator is designed to fit your preferred CO2 tank size. It easily installs on CGA-320 cylinder valves, without the use of a wrench.
The Atomic CO2 Regulator V3 is designed specifically for use with our Atomic CO2 diffusers. Excellent for the beginner enthusiast or the planted tank professional seeking a sleek, compact, superior quality regulator. It features a fixed working pressure, precision needle valve and German-engineered solenoid.
The Atomic Paintball CO2 Regulator V1 & V2 series is a superior quality CO2 Regulator for planted tank setups using paintball cylinders. The nano regulators are designed specifically for use with Atomic CO2 diffusers. The V2 incorporates a 3.3 watt low voltage, high quality solenoid, engineered in Germany. The series features a super precise needle valve and speed-fit tubing connection for ease of installation. Features fixed working pressure, designed specifically for use with Atomic CO2 diffusers.
This is our new nano co2 kit, the kit uses Atomic components from top to bottom. The regulator,cylinder stand,bubble counter and diffuser are all Atomic components.
This all in one turn key kit can also be upgraded with a solenoid for inline use. Most disposable co2 systems similar in look to this kit can not accept a solenoid due to the extreme high working pressure. This regulator has a preset working pressure that will allow you to incorporate a solenoid by simply applying one in line on the co2 tubing prior to the bubble counter.Everything you see is included except the rimless tank.

The CAL AQUA LABS Difference
What makes CAL AQUA LABS‘ glassware unique?
All glassware is not equal. What distinguishes glassware by CAL from others can be summarized in the four major steps that every piece of CAL glassware is required to undergo:
Our goal is to create innovative devices and improve upon existing designs in both physical form as well as its function and ease of use. Our glassware is designed to combine artistic form with function, resulting in glassware that is both elegant to look at as well as practical to use.
As soon as an idea for a device is conceived, our creative design team works closely with the master glass blower to finalize on a design that reveals the artistic elegance of glass as well as is practical to use. After that, several prototypes are made and tested to assess its performance, after which adjustments to the design are made. This process is repeated as required until a single optimized design has been chosen.
At CAL, our stringent quality control starts early – at the material selections stage. It is here where the first round of quality control is carried out.
Not all glass is the same. Because of this, we exclusively use premium-grade borosilicate glass for our products for superior strength, durability, and clarity. Our glass tubes are from renowned glass manufacturers like Schott AG and Pyrex to assure superior quality and clarity. However, even within a single shipment, certain pieces can have minor defects or small blemishes. We carefully go through each piece within each lot by hand to select only the pieces without blemishes. Only flawless pieces move on for further processing.
Each and every piece of CAL glassware is intricately handmade by highly experienced master glass-blowers. Every curve, bend, and joints require meticulous coordination as well as absolute precision in order for the final product to meet our stringent specifications. After the pieces have been formed, they undergo not one, but two separate heat treatment steps to strengthen the glass by relieving any strain that may occur during the production process.
The second round of quality control occurs here, where each piece of our glassware is carefully inspected by hand. It is here where the pieces that meet our specifications receive the CAL AQUA LABS insignia.
We value quality as much as we do innovation. After production, our glassware is individually inspected for the third time before being packaged. Each of our diffusers is individually tested by hand to assure that the ceramic diffuser discs perform evenly and the device functions according to specifications. Once the last round of inspection is performed, the glassware is then packaged and shipped out.
Cal Aqua Labs has introduced another new drop checker. This particular drop checker is available with or without a suction pad. The Cal Aqua Labs Clip drop checker is the most versatile drop checker on the planet when it comes to placement in the planted aquarium environment.
The white background the Cal Aqua Labs Clip Drop Checker has makes reading the color changes a breeze from a distance.
Here you can see the many ways in which you can use the Cal Aqua labs Clip Drop Checker
This is a new addition to the family of precision regulators we build custom everyday, the Ultimate CO2 Regulator – Two Stage. This dual stage model is complete overkill for the guy who thinks he needs to have everything and then some.
I should call it the Glutton! This regulator will come with several options for valves, one being the Fabco NV-55 and the Ideal needle valve. The Fabco Needle valve is all the valve an aquarist would ever possibly need.
