DIY CO2 - Working Pressure

Hi guys,

I was wondering if people out there using DIY CO2 (the baking soda citric acid method) could tell me what kind of working pressure their setup is capable of producing (at least stable for a week or so). Also if you could let me know what kind of diffusers you are running with it and how you like it that would be great!

Thanks for the info. What kind of diffuser are you running? are you happy with it? I really wanted to run an inline diffuser like the GLA atomic diffuser, but it seems to require way more pressure (something like 30psi it says).

I am using some basic difusor. I didnt buy anything special, becouse i was thinking that this wont work. But, for money i spend on it, it working relly good. I spend 2e for mixing acid and soda and have stabile co2 for 40-50+ days. I can put some pictures if you alove...
