If you look on e-bay you'll see that the new style diffuser costs more, sometimes double the old version. Also, I have not seen a single diffuser part sold separately yet. The old version can be...

Cherry shrimp can easily handle 350 TDS. If you really want to lower the tds you'll obviously have to do water changes with lower or zero tds water. Either a reverse osmosis filter to make it or...

How often do they go out of calibration? From what I've read so far, it seems like they need to be calibrated really often and then they need to be stored with the probes in some kind of storage...

4 years, at 30 psi is a very good service record. I will continue using it at 30 psi. That's the last I'll talk about the bubble counter.

My bubble counter has not failed. I've been using it for over 4 years at 30 psi. At 50 psi hoses can blow off of the barbs. If it didn't happen at the bubble counter it would have happened at the...

The Atomizer doesn't work until it hits 50 psi. These things usually work at 30. This has nothing to do with the bubble counter. Bubble counter is not causing the atomizer to not work right. Go...

Check valve is not stuck. I blew through it with my mouth. Its just a bad atomizer. It works, but at a ridiculous psi level. The ceramic atomizer is too dense. Its too bad I didn't try it...

I've given up on this atomizer. I did a total system check for leaks and found none. I actually had to bump it up to 50 psi to run stable. At 50 psi it ran for about 2 hours before one of the air...

That makes sense.
I found some reports of people needing 46 and 50 psi but also some people running it under 30 psi. I guess the quality of up-aquas ceramic isn't consistent.

This is not a new set up, its been checked. The only new thing here is the inline atomizer. It works, but at 45 psi. Just not sure I like it that high.

No leaks, I've checked. The fact that co2 stops flowing to the bubble counter at lower psi indicates that its not enough pressure. The atomizer holds the air back at that psi. If there was a leak,...

Up-aqua inline psi too high

Hi, just set up an up-aqua inline atomizer(d-508-16). There's no PSI information on the box. Right now I have it working at 45 psi. If I lower it past 42, my bubble counter stops. I don't feel...

50 psi should be more than enough pressure. I find that atomizer style diffusers usually work at 30psi but I set them at 35-40 psi. It could be that your regulator isn't actually producing 50 psi....
