Can you guys please help me out with where i can buy the needle valve, pressure gauge and safety valve? Also, what brands / type / specs to buy ?


Hi, I am also planning to buy citric acid from ebay. Its costing me Rs. 249 a kg. How did the citric acid work for you? Any reviews?

it worked out great. Although im not using the Diy setup mentioned here but got a readymade setup (D501) from aliexpress. Thats been working fine for almost a year now. Each refill lasts for about 20 odd days with 1bps running 24x7. I keep buying online since its not available locally near my house and im too lazy to go to newmarket.

Sanam, if you could share local place where we can pick up in bulk it'd be great.

Thanks Sanam and Sarvagya.

I also bought the same readymade setup from aliexpress recently. Will purchase citric acid from ebay. So 200 gm citric acid lasts for 20 days right?

Also, any suggestions for affordable baking soda?

FYI, am from Mumbai. Any information about local stores?

both are put in along with 300 ml of water and the valve is shut off. Pressure builds up and remains within the cylinder.

I too was wondering but then i saw a couple of youtube videos. aliexpress has these costing 7-8K. Not worth it, for that amount you can get a proper co2 kit.
