Finally Built My CO2 Reactor
i have finally built my own REX style co2 reactor. waiting for the cement to dry up, anyone know how long it takes to dry up?
my previous Rex co2 reactor was not diffusing the co2 all the way, i think it was due to strong flow and smaller size of the pipe. i went with 1.50" pvc pipe instead of 1.75"
i did not want to go with the 2" pipe, i thought that smaller size will build more flowing pressure inside the reactor to diffuse the co2 at much faster rate. i also did not make it 18" - 20" long as most people preferred. i went with the 26"-28" long pvc pipe and i still have to drill a hole for the co2, what size should i go with?
now i will post the picture and result of the co2 soon as possible but someone please suggest which drill to use.
