Needle valve and a dump tube on the reactor/diffuser. I don't need this on a
yeast set up and this works with that source as well(but no need for a
needle valve). You could do either one of these and it would help. The
needle valve would be the best method though. They are cheap, easy to add...

It would cost less to get/add a needle valve to the existing set up. While I
personally have had good luck with the disc(at home) I know others have not.
Several have had the dump happen. I used the needle valve and had no
problems. I'd work farther "down the line" due to the cost and control that
we have. Personally, I don't like messing with or making things that need
high pressure ratings. The Low pressure end is better:)
