My last one. Here is the post :

Today was the last day on the charge of: Was good for 30 days, 2bps for 8 hours a day.<br />
<br />
Bottle A = Citric Acid 400g to 600ml water<br />
Bottle B = Baking Soda 300g to 200ml water<br />
<br />
Lasted 30 days, but.... I was out of town during the last week that it ran so I can not say for sure that it ran for 2bps the whole time during that week. So I am going to restart today using the same ratios and see if I can duplicate this result. Stay tuned if anyone is still interested.

Stumbled on this since i was searching about the pressure building up high using this kit. Why theoretically it wont fail? The pressure was way past the green zone on the gauge just now when i checked it.

I would like to see a pic of the tank, angel tears and sand fall.

Strange that 1-typ of baby tears is growing and not the area. Perhaps water flow and Co2 is different for each due to their position in the tank.

Sand flow sounds interesting. Does it give the appearance of water flowing?

The ebay seller has been reluctant on sending me a replacement gauge. It looks like everything else works fine though.
How often do you have to replace the solutions in the bottles?

It has a gauge + needle valve + relief valve + tubing kit. Thus it looks like it could be hooked up to a timer.

This one is more expensive, but much neater and appears to be more rugged, plus having the relief valve for safety. I wish it had a check valve on the outlet to the diffuser too. It is on Ebay too.

Hoppy Use this link: http://www.aquaticquotient.com/forum...user-Generator But, it never gets around to saying how long a batch works. If it is a week, that's very usable. If it is a day, it isn't usable at all. I'm tempted to buy a kit and at least test it. The price isn't bad, but it comes from Hong Kong. I think I would use a check valve with it to stop tank water from flowing back into the bottles.

Droyer thank link appears to be dead? It does not work for me.

Hilde At a aquatic quotient there is a thread on the kit by some whom have used it.
