The only place I know of to order the kit is from Taam themselves. I would try to contact them again. You can order the needle wheel impeller on Amazon but not the impeller cover with Venturi.

I'm using needle wheels on (2) Rio 1100's as well. They are in the sump of my 240g.

When I contacted Taam about the conversion kits, I was told they don't sell the venturi part in the US, and they directed me to Amazon for the impellers.

The rio 1100 has an intake strainer attachment. I just snipped one of the grills off and you can squeeze the CO2 tubing right into the strainer. Any bubbles get sucked in and chopped up.
