Which type is better

Which DIY Co2 Reacter is more effective? Also can superglue be used to seal where the connecter piece goes into the cap?

You must be new.

Don't expect a response within 9 minutes, let alone a few hours...
Both are the same, except one has another bottle attached to it.
This bottle can be used as a bubble counter or just a gas separator.
You do not need actual tube fittings or super glue. Drill a hole in the cap smaller than the tube, cut the tube at an angle, push the tube through the hole, and use something like pliers to pull it through. There! Airtight.

Super glue would make a terrible seal. I've tried differnt adheasives such as plumbers goop, sillicone, and epoxy. In the end, the simplest way is just to drill a hole in the cap that is smaller than the tubing, and force the tubing through. To do this, cut the tubing to a point and then insert the point into the hole, this will allow you to pull the tubing all the way in with a plier.
