Gla co2 inline diffuser + hydor inline heater?

Can I put the inline co2 diffuser before the heater or does it have to go after?

Thanks,
Pyro

Mine is before the heater (and just after the filter outlet) because that's where it was convenient to put it... I don't think it's a problem.

Mine isn't adjustable but I also can't say that I've had any issues with the inline diffusers.. I have 3 of them and they're all working great

I just got my eth300 yesterday. In the booklet that came with it for installation it warns about any build up of air (or co2) inside the unit can be detrimental. Now they warn this can happen if not purging air out properlybefore plugging the unit in or not having the unit mounted completly upright but to err on the side of caution I will be placing my diffuser inline after the heater

If possible it would be more prudent to place the heater directly after the filter then the diffuser downstream from that.
