Difficulty Installing In-line Reactor
When I installed Rex’s reactor yesterday morning, my Eheim 2213 got an air bubble in it and no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to get rid of it. I installed the reactor vertically on the output end of the filter. The canister filter (placed below the tank) was closed off so the water level in it was unchanged. After priming all I could manage was a lackluster flow. The lower down I placed the tubing into a bucket beside the tank, the better the flow. Whenever I plugged it back over the brim and into the spraybar, I got the poor pressure and within a short time a bubble had built up again in the filter and it stopped. When I took the reactor out of the tubing, the bubble quickly got pushed out and all was well. All I can think of is that the air in the reactor is pushing back into the filter. Any advice?
