Re: [APD] venturis

Scott, I specilifically made the point about a trade off between this method using a venturi.
That is also the similar type of trade off with marine weeds+ refugium and using a big olod skimmer(Downdraft, venturi what have you etc).
Of course............
I tinker and have a solution to that issue as well that should work with any canister flow rate out(80gph or so).
The solution is pre existing also.
I'm just reapplying it in a different place and it's DIY and should cost no more than a few $(less than the Kent. less than 10$........the cost for a DIY external reactor). I like being so cheap and still having my cake and eat it too.
It can also be added to an existing DIY external reactor. A very simple way to purge the reactor chambers as well. Virtually no head pressure loss but still good misting. 
Still, these items need tried for practical application.
You just have to try it and see if it works. So far I've found a number of methods that do.
