would this work, i'm gonna be running a compressed system that goes to a bubble ladder and then I could maybe run a line into the intake strainer? That would be a lot of contact time with the water

After the bubbles make it all the way up the ladder there is next to no CO2 left in them. So I wouldn't bother about the 0.x % that you might get dissolved.

Apart from that, sure, it would work, as long as your filter doesn't get airlocked. Some filters are more susceptible to this than others.
With the magnums the impeller is on the bottom.. Might be tougher to airlock these puppies.
