I have a couple of the reactors and bubble counters.

The bubble counters are very nicely made.  The integrated check valve does
not stop water from backflowing on at least one of my units, but I didn't
arrange my equipment to depend on it so that was okay for me.  I like them.

When I first put the reactors in they didn't seem to work very well.  Even
with low CO2 flows, perhaps one bubble per second or less, they burped
quite frequently.  Now they do fine at up to 2 bubbles per second.  I don't
know why the difference.

The very act of seeking sets something in motion to meet us;
something in the universe, or in the unconscious responds as if
to an invitation.  - Jean Shinoda Bolen
