visibly desolved and actually desolved are 2 different thing... you can shake the crap out of a co2 buble but your just breaking it to pieces giving more surface area so tha tis desolved faster. then your shooting it backinto the tank where the water reentering the tank is mixed wiht tiny co2 bubbles(this is not carbonic acid) well... that water creates an upflow and ast it reaches the surface you loose most of your carbonic acid and pure co2 that was just tiny bubbles.
