4 In One Diy Co2 Unit For My 1000 Liter

I GOT IT NOW! AN ACRYLIC 60 LITER AQUARIUM DIVIDED INTO FOUR COMPARTMENTS, PARTITIONS 1.5" LONGER FORMING A 1.5" TUBE AT THE CENTRE FOR THE THERMOSTATIC HEATER. EACH QUATER HAVING A 6mm OUTLET(I have a roll of 6mm PVC tubing) WITH A STOPCOCK TO ENABLE ME TO ISOLATE THE QUATER WHILE RECHARGING. EACH QUATER HAVING ITS INDIVIDUAL BUBBLE COUNTER. THE ENTIRE HOUSED ON TOP OF A PLATFORM WITH COASTERS TO ENABLE ME TO DRAG IT OUT FOR SERVICING AND THEN PUSHING IT BACK TO ITS DARK CABINET. BEING A SINGLE UNIT I CAN INSULATE IT EASILY.

UNDOUBTEDLY I AM GOING TO SEAL THE TOP OF THE FOUR QUATERS SAVE EXCEPT THE 1.5" TUBE. THIS WILL ALLOW ME TAKE OUT THE HEATER FOR ADJUSTMENT.

I WOULD NEED ONLY TWO TUBES FOR CLEANING AND RECHARGING EACH QUATER. I INTEND TO USE 1 HALF INCH PIPE OPEN AT BOTH ENDS LEADING TO THE BOTTOM OF THE QUATER FROM THE TOP, AND ANOTHER ENDING JUST BELOW THE TOP WITH A STOPCOCK. THIS WILL ENABLE ME TO FLUSH THE QUATER, SYPHON THE QUATER, AND CHARGE THE QUATER, WITHOUT ANY NEED OF CAPS etc.
