So... Sounds like the issue isn't that it won't work. Just that there's a small chance of something going wrong, which is better off avoided.

This sound about right?

I didn't ask because I intend to try it, just out of curiosity since the facts didn't seem to match the claim. I haven't even used glass diffusers with DIY, better to avoid any pressurization at all. But recently I had a brand new metal check valve get stuck closed after just a few days, causing the pressure to build to the point where the DIY juice bottle looked like a balloon. Given the shape and feel of it, I think it was probably at more than 30PSI, which got me wondering about stuff like this.
