Anyone use this for CO2?

I seen one of these setup at a LFS and they said it worked good. Just curious if anyone else has used this and what they thought of it? If I were to get it, it would go on my 10g.

I've never used one, what I've heard is that they work pretty well but you're better off using a 2L bottle instead of the bottle in the kit.

I know that lots of people use the ladder for diffusion (it can be bought separately). I think that the rest of the system is a small DIY CO2 system. It might be adequate for a small tank. I don't know if it's any better than just making your own yeast solution - it's probably more expensive to buy their refills.

It's basically a DIY CO2 rig. Their yeast solution is just in a simple easy packet. Cheaper to do your own, but easier to use theirs.

I use the ladder on a 26g with (2) 2l bottles and it works very well. Takes about 24 hours for the bubbles to settle down on the ladder but after that they diffuse really good. The bubbles are tiny by the time they reach the top of the ladder.
