if you use clear pvc, that would be your bubble counter.

I don't think you could count the bubbles in the clear tube because the water rushing down through the pipe would stir up the c02 bubbles so much it would be nearly impossible to count each bubble as it enters.
Yes you could add a bubble counter before it enters the reactor.
