Cerges inline O2: Advice Needed


Hi Guys & Gals,

I am going to be incorporating an inline O2 system into my Cerges reactor.

One item that I am looking for is a quick disconnect airline tubing coupling. Can someone point me in the right direction to find one?

Also, I need a recommendation for an electric air pump that is reasonably quiet and has enough umph to push air through the the tubing, the coupling, a check valve and of course an airstone.

Thanks Much!

G

you cant really inject 02 into a cerges, 02 isnt as easily dissolved at c02, you will end up just filling the cerges with a very large air pocket.

au contraire

There is no plan to dissolve O2 from within the reactor itself. I want there to be O2 bubbles misting the tank (at night).
