Where can I buy a Hagen Ladder Separately?

Does anyone know where I can buy a hagen bubble ladder (co2 diffuser) separately instead of buying the whole CO2 kit? I've been searching google and ebay with no luck.

Thanks!

Alex

Thanks Tino.. You are the man! If I hook this up to my DIY CO2, will it work for a 37 gallon?

Yes. But for a 37 gal I would run two yeast bottles with both airlines integrated into one and then into your diffuser.

Actually.. Im using 1 bottle right now with champagne yeast hooked up to one of those wannabe glass diffusers (its plastic) and I'm getting about 24ppm's of CO2 (it produces fine bubbles). Per the Chuck's calculator thats at a good level. Tap water started with kh of between 9 and 10 and its now 8 in my tank, PH is 7.

Its producing CO2 at 2 bubbles per second. Trouble is that the seal that holds the ceramic disc in place is retarded and its leaking water into the diffuser slowly filling it up. I have a second bottle ready made in case I need to use it. I will give it a try with the ladder and if I need to hook up the second one, I will.

In case anyone is wondering, I use the Red Star champagne yeast. 1 packet plus 2 cups of sugar in a 1.8 litre gatorade bottle produces strong CO2 for like 2 to 3 weeks. I bought it for 50 cents a packet at a local brewer store.
