If you plug the pump into the light timer, this will free the debris each
If you drill a small 3/16" hole about 2" down from the top iof the tube
this will allow the gas to escape out of the tube at night but not effect
the efficiency during the day.

This allows you to pump in high amounts of CO2 for 8-10 hours and then shut
it off.
DIY CO2, non solenoid methods can easily use this method.

Reactors place near the outflow from a filter is good placement.
Adding a venturi loop also can help when using a powerhead.
