Problem with CO2 Advanced System
I've never heard of this problem before so I was wondering if anybody could help me out.
I'm using the ADA CO2 advanced system on my 30-c. I manually turn it off every night and on again in the morning. When I turn the CO2 back on though, the sudden release pushes water out of the bubble counter up the tubing where it collects in the bottom of the diffuser. After a couple of times, the diffuser fills up, the gas cant escape, and one of the tubes ends up popping off to release the pressure.
Has anybody experienced this problem before? Is there a certain way it should be set up to prevent this from happening? I have it set up on my desk next to the aquarium with about a foot of pressure resistant tubing to the check vavle from the ball valve, 4 or 5 inches of silicone tubing to the bubble counter which is attached a third of the way up the side of the tank, and then another foot and a half of silicone tubing to the diffuser which is at the bottom of the tank underneath a HOB intake. Does that sound about right?
Thanks for any help,
