  1. My oxygen demand valve came with a 6-foot-long hose. One end of the hose has a DISS connection sized for oxygen and connects to the regulator; the other end of the hose connects to the demand valve. The Oxygen flow is: Tank, regulator, hose, demand valve, mask, patient. Maybe another way to explain it is that the regulator needs to have the proper connections for both the tank and the hose; e.g., the regulator needs to have the DISS connection. DISS connections are sized for the gas that is flowing to avoid connecting to wrong gas source. Also, the DISS fitting for the demand valve should not be limited by the regulator setting. Scroll through this forum tread and I think that there are photos of a setup that might work for you. https://clusterbusters.org/forums/topic/6632-demand-valve-o2/?tab=comments#comment-65652 I use E-tanks with a CGA870 connection to the tank. Here is the regulator I use if that will help. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ZVPR7NM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Hope that helps and if not, keep asking......
  2. Hi, and sorry you need to be here, but glad you found this forum, it has helped me immensely. I support what has been written and will further offer that the Vitamin D3 regime has helped me. Please follow it completely including cofactors and testing D3 levels. Adding your data and results to the collective process will help others. I can also offer that an oxygen demand valve may make learning the technique a bit easier and may save some O2 while providing all you need. If you are purchasing a regulator and you think a demand valve is in your future, pick up one with the proper DISS connections. On the Clusterbusters website is much info on regulators and demand valves. I am pretty quiet on the forum, but happy to help where I can. good luck.
  3. Hi and providing a bit of comparison.... before I purchased my demand valve from "Divers Alert Network" (DAN.org) I asked for some specs and this is what they provided. The cover sheet started "Life Support Products" by Allied. A late edit here with a few details that may help others. A fellow CH suggested this particular demand valve and I purchased it in late 2019 in preparation for my "normal upcoming cycle;" however, the cycle never showed up. At the end of the last cycle I had started the D3 regime and am giving that credit for the missed cycle. (I am very glad to have the new valve unused!) I tested the valve and could not get it to limit the flow and it stopped all flow as expected. From reading the spec sheet, it appears to be 160 LPM model, but I am sure I would be satisfied with 40 LPM. My transaction with DAN.org was easy, no script, no questions. The link is: https://apps.dan.org/dive-store/?id=39. The current cost is $205. Again, I have tested it, but have had little need for it. Others with more experience with this particular valve may offer comment. Be safe.
  4. Hi. While not that particular model, I got my demand valve from Divers Alert Network (DAN.org). Divers use them for emergencies. I am in the USA and no questions asked. Hope that helps and good luck.
  5. This is the one I bought from Divers Alert Network. Around $200. https://apps.dan.org/dive-store/?id=39 I have not used it much since I started the D3 regime. good luck and be pain free.
  6. Such great news. Many thanks for all your hard work. I know the Vit D3 regime made a difference for me.

    Thanks Kat. Ginger is an anti inflammatory and I take it most days with the D3 regime. I also take turmeric. I buy ginger powder bulk at Natural Grocers as it seems a better value than the little cans. stay PF mickey
