Cerges Reactor - Putting heater inside

Hey guys,

I bought a 20" housing to build a cerges reactor. Does anybody have experience putting a heater inside (ie. Ebo Jager)? I would have to snip the power cord, put it through the cap and reconnect it.

Thanks

concerns
  • reduce space inside reactor > increase flow > bubble push out easier
  • cooler co2 enriched water + heat = co2 form bubble
  • gas pocket > dry heater....
  • hard to adjust temperature

benefits: save space, all in one

Usually people making DIY heater enclosures just use a 1" cord grip, which seals perfectly around most standard glass tube-style heaters. Heyco will send you a sample for free.
