Absolutley worth the money.
The pre-packaged kit took the mystery out of upgrading from liquid carbon to a canister carbon system. I ordered a standard 5lb CO2 canister from Amazon and set up the kit from the F&S instructions. In two months its made a huge positive difference in plant health, water quality and tank maintenance. This system works as advertised and it's worth every penny. While after some experience I agree the separate bubble counter is probably not needed, I've used it without issue.
A bodega in my neighborhood that sells kegs of beer filled the CO2 canister for $20. So far its lasted a little more than two months. Finding a place to fill or swap an empty canister won't be difficult and its worth the effort.

Co2 Made Easy!
I was shopping around going back and forth if even I should get a co2 system or not. A co2 system was very confusing and intimidating to me. When I read the reviews of this one I thought I would try it. I am so glad I did. Plants love it, the tank loves it, and it love it!! Very simple to set up. Bypass the bubble counter it's the odd man out. The rest are good solid quality.

I have been using this for about 5 weeks now with no problem on a used 20 lb. Pepsi tank. The solenoid works but was never hooked up to the timer as the c02 runs 24/7. A good substrate, good lighting, and the plants are healthy and strong. Plants need to be trimmed every week now.
