Built to Last
GLA is the super co2 system.
I love this regulator, no gimmicks and very solid. Much larger than my crappy one and so much better performance. This system was a good buy and has been solid since day one. I do nothing to it, only clean it to keep is shiny and new. I like the US representation with many US made products that come along with the system. Everything arrived packaged very professionally, nothing like amazon. Purchasing from GLA was an absolute pleasure, great company with fantastic support.
Go with GLA co2 systems.
It only took me one mistake to know I should have gone with GLA from the start. The support system and experience left me refreshed after my previous with a GLA competitor. I dont know much about co2 systems but there is one thing I noticed about this co2 system compared to my other one. It has a level of finesse that just oozes quality. My bubble control was leaps and bounds in easy control. I may not know co2 systems very well but I can tell you GLA co2 systems are worth every penny. You simply will not get the same quality and service with anybody else. Just like GLA told me, stick with the pioneers of this system and you will be left extremely happy.
GLA is the best of the best in co2 systems.
Just retired my Amazon co2 regulator for this epic GLA system and boy, what a difference. This regulator is built much more substantially than my 2 previous co2 regulators. Its literally 3x the size and feels like a real piece of equipment. My Fzone regulator felt like a paperclip and would not hold a steady bubble rate without daily human interference, I hated it since day one. After installing GLA co2 system I knew right away, it was a blessing. Its been handsfree ever since, we love it!
Top shelf co2 system from GLA.
Very satisfied with GLA and GLA products in general. New house required all new hardware and must be of best quality and its presence must be appealing. GLA co2 system checked all these marks and is worthy of a 5 star review. I have a long history with co2 system and this space required the best and this is it. Much higher quality regulator body and valve system. Cleaner less bulky design. The solenoid, very very nice. They incorporated a clear housing using a liquid tight chord grip. IP67 all the way. Stainless steel gauges and high quality cylinder with present dating good for 5 years. The tubing we received per our spec in grey color was a nice touch to the installation. Our opening is next month and the space looks terrific. We added the GLA stainless filter and co2 reactor and it is the best. Go to GLA, they are the real pioneers of this new generation of manifold co2 system.
One bad ass co2 system.
What can I say, its GLA. This kit is super nice. Very well made all around. Lots of American ingenuity from GLA. Fantastic warranty but I doubt I will need it. This thing just pumps out co2 with ease and without any intervention on my part at anytime until time to refill. Over the years I have used many co2 systems. This year is my second GLA system because I loved the warranty and my old 2008 system from GLA. These guys just know what they are doing. They invented this concept of modular co2 systems so aint nobody better at knowing them inside and out like GLA. Because all the others are just riding GLA's coat tails.
Big upgrade from my co2art regulator.
I just upgraded the tank and filter and at the time was already having issues with my co2art regulator. I was debating sending it back to Europe for repair but the cost was astronomical. After talking with friends at our local fish/plant club I was referred to GLA. I dont know why but this GLA regulator is so much larger than the co2art regulator in all directions. Makes it feel like your using something of substance, vs the more toy like feeling with co2art. It felt like it came out of a vending machine and that would explain its cheap cost and functional issues. This GLA regulator handles everything so much better. I dont mess with it at all but Im always looking at it to make sure its not spazzing out. If your looking to upgrade look no further.
The best of the best.
The best co2 regulator Ive ever used. Easy to install, silky smooth operation and rock steady.
Premium quality co2 system.
We spent a few weeks looking over options and in the end went with GLA. After contacting customer support discussing our requirements we landed here. This is a very well put together system. Granted it does not come with a diffuser, its for good obvious reasons. Everything in the box was very well packed, like when you mom packed your lunch box. Everything was just neatly nested. It took us only a few minutes to install and had co2 in the plant beds in no time. Its been working superb for going on 9 weeks now. I keep is clean with a microfiber cloth with some plant based stainless steel cleaner. It helps keep the dust off and keeps nice and shiny new looking. Its the nicest piece of aquarium equipment we own and our tank is 180g. Thanks GLA!
Outstanding build quality.
Really enjoying GLA's dual stage co2 system. I would rate it more stars if they had them available. Since replacing my old regulator things are much more stable and I no longer need to utilize a pH controller. I not use a simple Bluetooth timer to automate my co2. I can even control if from my phone in terms of turning it off or on if required. Ive been aquascaping for many years and used several co2 systems in the past. This GLA kit really stands out in many ways. The regulator is packaged like an egg. Setting up was a few minutes of bliss. I did start with a fresh new diffuser this time going with GLA's new stainless steel co2 reactor. I wish I could post pictures of GLA's co2 system and reactor in my cabinet. Its a sight of beauty. Your going to love your GLA system. You can tell they enjoy building them.
Always buy GLA co2 systems.
Invest wisely with GLA. Superior builds,better customer service and a staff that knows aquacspaing and co2 better than anybody. I find GLA co2 systems to be much better in durability and general performance. This is my second system from GLA and could not be more happy.
Top shelf co2 system.
Everybody who recommended this system to me was right, its super nice. GLA is top tier of co2 systems no doubt about it. If your not sure just do what I did, email them and ask. Then when it arrives to your door you will instantly know. These aint toys! GLA is A++
GLA co2 systems are the best of the best.
3rd Gen owner here. I can attest to GLA quality co2 regulators. I have several systems in my space going on 13 years old. Recently I ordered this system and I was very excited to receive it. I was delivered promptly and everything was packed ever so neatly. You can tell GLA cares about every step. This system was very easy to install and everything is just buttery smooth in operation. I like to use mineral oil in my bubble counter so I never have to refill it. This system has been rock steady for 9 months so far and Im about to refill this cylinder any day now. The folks at GLA are top notch folks. I can only imagine the stuff they must deal with these days to bring us such excellent products to our hobby. Thank you GLA for being ever supportive of my hobby. Your products have brought many smiles into my families home.
This is the kit.
I looked high and low and did all my research for ridiculous amount of months. Come 2022 I ordered this system from GLA. I love the co2 regulator, and all the bits it comes with. The cylinder was very new and US made as is the co2 tubing they supply so I liked that even more. It’s been flawless and my tank is bringing me so much pleasure when I need it the most. Great products and service from GLA.
This is the best co2 regulator and service.
On an emergency I needed replacing my old co2 system. My co2art regulator chekc valve failed and flooded the regulator. I tried to clean it and purge it of water with no luck. They had no service option either so basically became trash. Super important factor GLA should advertise, you can service and rebuild a GLA regulator! First impressions, very high quality, you can feel it and visually see it. The finish is much nicer than co2art and the precision of the bubble rate is much more linear. The solenoid is very well made and the bolt design is much nicer and much more compact and finished. It also has a water tight chord grip leading to the LED. I should have went GLA from the start.
Only way to fly is GLA.
I echo what many here say, GLAS is the way to go. Ive tried all the competing brands and GLA is leaps and bounds in quality and flow rates. The needle valve is sooooo much nicer. I love it!
GLA PRO-DS-1 Dual Stage CO2 System (Modular)
So happy with this purchase - my first real CO2 system! Excellent customer support, excellent quality! Now I can almost see my plants growing!
Very much a professional grade co2 system.
I found GLA through Plantedtank.net with recommendation to go with GLA for our aquascape at home. We loved the system so much we ordered another for our office aquarium at work. GLA has been an absolute blessing to work with. Highly recommended them.
The best of the best in aquarium co2 systems.
If your reading this review you’ve landed in the right place for your co2 system. I had inquired with GLA due to an urgent need for a co2 system because my current one was struggling. I was having to monitor the co2 daily and make constant adjustments. That’s only after 3 months and do use on a brand new regulator from Amazon. Needless to say, this system is exactly what your looking for in a complete co2?system. The team at GLA assembles,test and package your co2 system in house. This in itself is quite amazing with technical products like this. They provided very clear instructions along with top shelf packaging. You can really tell GLA has there stuff together and they love co2 systems. All the tools were inside the box along with links to videos to get going. I had plenty of experience fooling with my previous model so installing this system took me only 3 minutes. Everything was just so smooth, adjusting my bubble flow rate was effortless. The sad part, my ptsd from having to constantly fool with my last co2 system, I kept going back to check it. It was rock steady say in and day out. Thank you to everybody at GLA who saved my aquascape from disaster. By and far the best customer experience of my life. I’m a fan forever.
Go with GLA, dont be like me.
My first co2 system from co2art was total garbage. Wife is extra pissed I wasted that coin on them. Had I known about GLA prior I would have totally went with GLA. My god, the difference is night and day. People, dont be fooled because that other shit is absolute garbage in comparison. I reached out to GLA for a few basic questions, they responded quickly and were very helpful. This system is the way to go 100%. Dont be a sucker go with GLA!
Best co2 system available.
I spent days doing my homework, at one point considered building my own. After much research GLA was the way to go. Im glad I did because its been excellent. I was not endorsed or paid to leave this review. I only wish I could attach photos of my aquascapes to this review. Save yourself the headache and go with GLA.
