Diy co2 powerhead

I am using a power head to run the co2 through. I run the tube in the intake area where it sucks up water and the powerhead breaks it into smaller bubbles. However I heard that it may be a problem and may damage the powerhead should I find another way to insert it?

I have been using Rio 50s like this for years and years and have never had any problems.

YMMV.
