new to co2 injection


hello all,

i have been looking around on the net for diagrams of a co2 system with a ph controller and have had no luck. i would really like to see how it should be set up before my system arrives.

as far as the system goes it will be the following:

am pinpoint regulator with needle valve,solenoid,and bubble counter

am pinpoint ph controller

aqua medic 500 reactor

10lb canister

i was thinking about plumbing in my ehiem 2217 to the reactor or would a maxi jet 1200 be a better option?

i would like to see diagrams both ways if possible.

thank you once again appreciate the help

im deff not drawing one this late lol. i did find this one although not the best should help you out. the only diff is the overflow box would kinda be your canister filter.... sorry i couldnt find a great one.

also i would go with a inline reactor if you can. who wants the extra junk in the tank. they should both be able to dissolve co2 only diff would be how much co2 you have to use. i think the inline would be more efficient but i really have no proof.
