Duetto Filter DJ100

Last night I bought a Duetto DJ100 internal filter to use as a CO2 "reactor" (or whatever you would like to call it, couldn't think of anything better). I hooked my pressurized CO2 system up to its air intake tube and let it rip. Previously I had been bubbling the CO2 into the intake tube of my Fluval 404 canister, but, it seemed that the gas was getting trapped in the cannister only to be released in bulk after building up over a period of time, releasing large bubbles, rattling the filter, and I am sure, wasting the CO2. My pH was 7.2 yesterday at this time. Today it is 6.2. Talk about good CO2 mixing. So, I am dropping the bubble rate down from 1 per second to 1 every 3 seconds to see where it stabilizes. I have the filter's flow rate set at its lowest as well. I know this topic has been brought up on APD before, but, I just wanted everyone to know that it does indeed work well (at least for me)!
