|Gnomecatcher||Don't you get a lot of CO2 offgassed as the water flows out the filter? I would imagine that it would be difficult to keep up the amount of CO2 in the water column.|

|FunkyMonk||very nice mod here. I like the ada diffusor in the tank! keep up the good work! I have to try this now.|

Great mod. I actually did this with my filter a few months ago, but I didn't put a diffuser in at all, just stuck the tubing through the hole. The impeller chops it up and it gets caught in the media. Works like a charm.
I also turn off the filter every day to feed baby brine, and when I power it back up it is still able to prime, even with the hole clogged.

Do not using the chopstick piece makes any difference at the end?????

I will definitely try it!

I bought an inexpensive ceramic disk nano diffuser, but it looks larger than it did in the photo and still doesn't fit under that plate by the impeller. So I was about to start to modify it by sawing it into sections and then reassembling it, but then I went and rummaged through the kitchen until I found a chopstick. Chopstick piece works fine, but it does make a little almost squeaky noise whenever bubbles come out.
By the way, how many bubbles per second do you find to be the best in order to achieve 20-30 ppm in an Edge?

So I'm looking for a new needle valve now to add in-line.

|Tamelesstgr||What would happen if you just left the end of the tubing open and bubble inside the filter? I have an AC70 I am wanting to try this on.|
