That was what i thought at first too, so i put the co2 bottle in a cup with warm water to see what happen. It did produce a little faster bubble (1 bub every 5-6 sec), but nothing like when the sun hit it directl; i was getting like 4-5bps. Maybe something else is happening & not co2 production? any idea?
