Co2 Atomic Diffuser
 
Does GLA Atomic Diffuser work on 10 psi or less?

bababooey 02-19-2012 03:53 PM

I have an inline GLA atomic diffuser. You need 30 psi for any of the atomic diffusers to work properly. Some people even go all the way up to 45 psi but I've never had to do that.

The inline ones are very easy to hook up, works very well creating an extremely fine mist, and they don't reduce flow (big bonus for me).

^^^ Thank you bababooey!;)

30psi would be minimum.

How is a person suppose to choose what size of an atomic diffuser we need I'm our aquarium?

It takes few days for a sponsor to answer questions here. I was unhappy about it when I first posted. It was even bababooey who answer my question. It was the reason I didnt buy this product.

Sorry GLA.

It can be difficult. However even the largest model is ver small in terms of footprint. You have to get a general idea on what your bubble count will be first, then figure out how large of diffuser you want in your tank viewing area.
You can always go large with no problem but you can't go to small for large tanks with increased bubble counts. The higher the bubble count the larger the mist.

This even applies to all misting systems,glass and atomizing.

What size aquarium do you have?

Using a forum as a means to contact us or any buisness does not seem logical for a speedy reply.
I strongly suggest folks actually contact a business directly. We have several means of communication including the most popular means on the planet, email, phone,Facebook,and lastly we even have our own forum.

All of these contact forms,email etc are all located on our site. I recommend folks use these as forms for initiating contact in regards to product questions.

Sorry for going off topic from the op, but I just wanted to say that when I ordered my first c02 setup from GLA, I e-mailed them with a bunch of newbie questions and they always answered incredibly quickly and were extremely helpful.

sjb1987 04-29-2012 04:59 PM

So I should get the bigger one.... Bigger is better.... Im setting up a 20l but more than be likely be upgrading it to 40b.... Right now I have a 125 with 2 sera flora reactors.... Not too impressed with them.... The 20l is gonna be an experimenting tank

You certainly cant go wrong with larger. However its when you have a small nano sized tank that you dont want to go bigger.

If we were doing a 125 ideally you want an inline diffuser. But if you want to use in tank model diffuser I would advise on using a manifold on your regulator so you could work 2 diffusers at one time. Mist is king! :hihi:

I agree and sorry for the OT. Always contact via email or phone. I sent and received close to a dozen emails regarding my co2 setup and was very impressed with answers and speed. I also received call backs promptly. The forum is more of an announcement strategy and a secondary Q & A.

it would be nice to put this info on your website so people like me who didnt know this wouldnt have wasted money on the diffuser. it works great, but to bad i cant use it on my setup. could not return or exchange their products.

I think you had missed the product description on the website which states the diffuser requires minimum 30 psi. Anyway, you can always sell it back to any member on this forum. What size of diffuser did you buy may i ask ?

Green Leaf Aquariums 06-29-2012 08:47 PM

That's correct. The diffuser info is posted in the product info:)

Yamaz 06-30-2012 04:21 AM

I think i misunderstood the part that said low pressure. I wanted to use it either with a diy co2 or split system which i already had your nano diffuser which isnt on your website anymore. so either way it wasnt going to work for me.

I went with the 50mm and it's being run on my 15 gallon. About 1.5 bps.
