Your actually putting the anti-siphon in the CO2 tank. What you would do is attach the tank to your marker, mark where the top is, remove from marker, de-gas the tank, remove the valve assembly, attach the anti-siphon kit to the valve, reattach the valve and re-gas the tank.

no its pretty simple, just make sure the tank is empty ;)

Use loctite Blue on the threads, If you use the red, its really hard to get off.

Advantages to macro line: Cheap to replace, fairly flexible, can get it in many colors.

Disadvantages to macro line: can sometimes pop out under pressure if not completely seated, rumoured to not work as well with CO2 (never stopped me though), not as durable as stainless steel braided line.

Not all co2 canisters will allow you to use an anti-syphon internally. I took apart a catalina once that wouldn't accept the fitting.

It was last year, and if memory serves me correctly; there wasn't any where to tap or do anything with it. I do remember we tossed it and took apart a different make tank/valve and there was something there to work with.:o

I mentioned a tap because that's exactly what I did to the large valve on my 20lb fill tank for the siphon. I just tapped the hole in the valve then put threads on the copper siphon tube then screwed them together using some red Loctite -
