DIY Co2 and glass Diffuser
I'm running a DIY C02 setup, the 2L pop bottle thing and I'm getting lots of good production. I have my main bottle running into a second smaller one half filled with water. The main line from the large bottle go's to the bottom of the small one with a second line out an inch or so from the top of the cap leads to a check valve then into the tank were I'm using a glass diffuser with the white ceramic disk I got off [Ebay Link Removed] Im not seeing any tiny bubbles coming from the diffuser. The lids to the bottles are super tight and tubing (polyurethane) are tight through the holes in the caps and I used a large amount of krazy glue to hold everything in place. I can't see having a leak of any kind in my setup. The diffuser is a large one, about one inch across the top. Is it just with as little flow you get with C02 DIY it doesn't have the pressure to push through the disk? When I run the line with nothing on it into the tank the bubbles coming out the end are at the same rate as I can see in the second bottle.
Sorry for the novel, I just dont want to go to work and come home to a mess.
