Fw: DIY CO2 bubble rate control and reactor
I just set up a DIY CO2 system today, typical 2 liter cola bottle. The
output goes into the intake of a Penguin 550 power head. It's not noisy,
the bubbles seem to come out about 1 per sec. and are chopped into a flurry
of bubbles that fill the water. They don't seem to dissolve or dissapear. I
don't have a bubble counter or reactor at this time. I also don't have a
pressure release valve or a needle valve in line to control pressure or
rate. I just don't have the money at the moment.
What are your opinions on a DIY reactor in terms of effectiveness and ease
of construction? I don't want to waste time & effort building a mediocre
reactor, at that point it would be better to buy one.
Similarly, any opinions on inexpensive pressure release valves or systems?
