Re: [APD] Using powerheads for a CO2 diffuser
The gas line feeds into the pump intake, at the volute,
instead of the output nozzle. YOu can add a short piece of
undergravel filter riser tubing to the bottom of power head
and feed the CO2 line there. Or poke the tube into the comb
on the bottom of the powerhead if it has one.
The Rio were once quite popular with the reefers for
venturi protein skimmers, then TAAM reportedly had a rash
of disintegrating impeller cores about 5 years ago and the
crowd seemed to swing over to the Max-jets.
But if you want mist, check out what's being put on venturi
protein skimmers. The reefers are a bigger market and
understandably get better responses from the manufacturers
than we planters do.
Have gas, have fun,
