CO2 Reactors

I'm constructing a cO2 reactor similar to the high priced ones sold by 
Dupla, Sandpoint, etc. I have it rigged so far so water enters the top 
and exits the bottom. CO2 will enter the bottom, thus creating a counter 
current flow. Is it necessary to have some kind of vent at the top to 
release trapped gas??
