The Carbo-Plus works quite well. I'm not sure that it is a good source of CO2 but every time you buy one a whole chain of people make money. Also every time you buy supplies they make money. And it does a great job of stripping the kH out of your water.

So now we know it works as a true money sink. Beyond that your mileage may vary.

Heard that it would produce some rusty material as the by-product. It also release great amount of heat too.

ROFL. Nice to see a different opinion without ignoring the facts! Well spoken
