CO2 Nano Diffuser Not Working.
I've only recently built my DIY CO2 for my 20 Gallon Tank, I made a mixture a week back that was producing a bubble each second but slowed down with in 4 days and then it was a bubble every 4 seconds, which people seem to aim for anyway, but my nano diffuser obviously wasn't getting the pressure at a bubble per 4 seconds.
I should of done my research before buying a nano diffuser, I just read they was great for getting the CO2 in the tank, until now I read there best for pressurized systems.
I am using a 2l bottle at the moment, and am thinking it might be worth a try to get another 2l bottle hooked up and see if I get enough pressure then, Any opinions on this would be great, I get my co2 drop checker tomorrow I hope so at least I can then measure the CO2 then.
I also think I have a small leak somewhere, as it use to work, I did find one earlier by using washing up liquid, I'm only using super glue at the moment to seal around the tubes, I'm also only using normal air line tubing, so would this stop it working?
I have read limewood air stones are a good diffuser, what would you recommend? I want to keep it simple as possible, but would prefer if I can get the nano fuser working as the bubble are so tiny when it gets going.
Also to add, my setup is a 2l bottle into a smaller bottle of water, to act as a bubble counter and to remove the yeast or anything nasty that could enter the tank... I did have a check valve but removed that earlier, but its still not getting enough pressure, strange as a few days ago the whole system was running for at least 2 days with a check valve aswell. But I guess 1/2 tsp yeast was to much and died of quickly.
Any help and tips on how to find leaks or fix my system would be appreciated, thanks.
