Re: [APD] Reactor 1000 problems
Can you describe your set-up a little more. Is the reactor
hooked up to a water flow source? If so, this could be
nothing more than outflow from the the water flow source
(pump, canister filter, etc).
Is the reactor outlet hose below the water surface in the
aquarium? If so this could be nothing more than siphoning.
Is there a check valve on the CO2 gas line between the
reactor and the bubble counter? If so, and it's working
correctly, it should prevent backflow.
