Hagen Co2 Help!

I just set it up a couple days ago, Friday, and it creates a bubble very ~30secs.

My question is, are the bubbles supposed to reach the surface and pop?? Shouldn't the bubbles go into the ladder and pop?

Thanks,
Sly

I'd recommend positioning the ladder so that one side of the incline is actually level with the tank. That way, it helps prevent the bubbles from simply climbing right up the ladder and out into the atmosphere.
Thanks!

I'll see if that works.

Double check to be sure you've got the little plastic piece at the bottom of the ladder is facing the correct direction and fully inserted. The shorter end should be facing the center of the ladder so the bubbles are directed towards the ladder rather than out the side. Also, I had one where I didn't get the tab all the way in the slot and the bubbles came up in front of the ladder until I fixed it.

I tilted the ladder a bit and changed the output piece more towards the backside of the tank. The bubbles now go onto the ladder.

Are the bubbles supposed to burst over time? Because I see lots of them in different levels still as bubbles. Getting smaller as they ascend to higher levels.

I appreciate the help!

Sounds like the ladder is functioning properly Sly! Nothing to worry about!
