DIY External CO2 Reactor

I have an old external filter casing. It was sold for use as extra
filter capacitor. Basically it is an external filter without the
impeller.

I wa going to make an external CO2 reactor using plumbing parts, but was
wondering whether I could used the "filter casing" instead, and fill it
with Bio Balls.

Is this a good idea?

It could work...but what is going to drive the water in-out of the "emtpy" filter/reactor? Another filter?

By the ways, WELCOME TO THE PLANTED TANK!!!

Re-boot!
