DIY Co2 reactor
I am currently using one of those cheapo green "reactors" the sell online that they import from China. I'm semi satisfied with them, but they are made with extremely low quality plastic, so after adjusting them, both elbows split and the caps have sprung a leak. Tons and tons of teflon tape have made them workable but I wanna look for a better alternative.
I wanna make a DIY reactor but I'm not very handy and don't know where to start with parts. I'm guessing first I would need a cylinder, preferably clear. Then I would need to areas on the top and bottom for the water to flow in and out and an gas input somewhere. Don't know if I want a vortex reactor or something with media in it. I just want something that does the job, is easy to put together/take apart, and most importantly, is easy on the wallet
