diy co2 question


do you have to have a t valve if you want to use 2 bottles of yeast mixture or can you run a tube from each bottle into the gas separator

I built a diy co2 and its not building enough pressure to push co2 into my tank
I can see the gas separator bubbling so Ik the mixture is working and I sealed every tube connection with glue so if there is a leak idk where it is. but the damn thing wont bubble in my tank. I was thinking maybe its cuz I didn't use a T valve

Sounds like you've got a leak. If they are held together well enough the co2 will make its way to the end of the line sense the pressure keeps building and building. Took me a while to find all the little places air was seeping out in mine.
