I wanted to ask your advice on my homemade CO2 reactor I made weeks ago -
it seems to be hardly working and is in need of replacing (ie there is no
evidence of CO2 being bubbled into the reactor). It is a standard 2 litre
softdrink bottle with a line into the tank into a small plastic softdrink
bottle, upended and weighted down with several small holes about 1/3 of
the way up the bottle.
Last night I was suprised to notice the bottle was half filled with water
and half with CO2. This morning the bottle was 3/4 filled with water and
1/4 with CO2.
What happened to the CO2? Did it dissolve into the water? or does someone
have another explanation?
