my version of the diy co2 reactor
finally got my co2 equipment from "premium aquatics" and got my materials for my reactor ready. found a local company that carries clear pvc, so i went to pick up a piece and found they only sell 10' sections , and at $7 a foot i didnt want to buy a whole 10 footer , my original plan was to use 2" but when i found the supplier had a piece of 1 1/2 " i grabbed it , and to make it even better he gave it to me free! hopefully when i step up injection rate it will continue to work well. right now at 2bps it works like a champ... and i think it should keep working as planned . if not i have ball valves which i can adjust flow rate if needed .
so here are some pics....
