I need inline reactor plans

I have searched but can't find plans here for an inline co2 reactor. The ones I found the links did not work.

I did one like this except I did a brass nipple on the area where the coupler and pipe come together. For the brass nipple I had to tap the hole to be able to screw it in no big deal with a drill and a tap bit.

Thank you everyone. I can see that with bio balls the co2 hits it and desolves. How does it desolve in the open chamber?

They're good without bioballs. As far as I'm concerned they'll just slow down flow and offer the possibility of getting clogged.

I guess my question is how does it desolve in an open chamber?

The bubbles go up and the water flow goes down. The bubbles will break up on their own from the turbulence of going against the current. No bio-balls necessary.
