I'm in the process of buying a Dupla Bubble Counter for my low pressure
cylinder setup and was wondering it it was possible to add ph test liquid to
water you put in the counter?
Could it work? If not why not?
I assume you are talking about using a bubble counter as a tank pH monitor?
It will not work because there is no contact between the tank water and the
liquid in the counter. The only thing you will see there would be the CO2's
effect on the pH of the test liquid, which has nothing to do with the tank.
Get yourself a chemical pH test kit or an electronic pH monitor and test the

using the Tetra pH test for some time
now- you know the one that gives you cancer :P - but an electronic
monitor woould be dreamy if not for the
Anyone ever made a diy intank pH monitor like Duplas? I don't think it
