How far away between the inline co2 and water return pipe?


Does it really matter where you place the inline co2 on the water return line? Can you install it 4 inches away from the water return nozzle?

I suppose the further away it is, the more chance for the bubbles to dissolve completely before hitting your tank.

Thanks! Another question should I install the inline co2 diffuser before or after the inline heater?

after. You don't want air bubbles building up in your heater.
