Keeping co2 tube attached
 
Hi guys

I have been using co2 for a few months now but seem to have a problem with the tubes attached to the diffuser popping off now and again. I have tried pushing it on as far as I can then securing on with a tie wrap but eventually that pops off too.

Any advice guys?

Here's what I'm using now.

Well that's a great idea!

What diffuser? You should have a lip on the inlet that the tube slides over. Might need to heat the tubing a bit to make it fit.

What diffuser are you using? I had a lot of trouble with my ADA diffuser, and finally i just shoved it as far as i possibly could and it never moved. Took like 5 times to finally get it secure.

maybe you already tried, I applied a little vaseline so it can go all the way in.

Mmm. Well now, I didn't realize that we were on THAT kind of forum. ;)

Try different tubing. I really like silicone airline tubing if you are running low pressure but it doesn't work well at high pressure (had to swap it out when I got an Atomic diffuser and up my pressure to 40 PSI). Vinyl tubing gave me the most issues with stuff like this, even with DIY CO2.

Hi guys

I have a nano diffuser, I like the suggestion of silicone tubing. I'll let you know how it goes.

Cut the portion/segment that goes into the nano diffuser and try inserting again.
