Hi all!

Hope all is well.

I tried contacting CO2art via email, but without response so asking this in this forum.

I recently bought the the CO2art pro elite regulator and an inline CO2-atomizer. Sadly, I cannot get the atomizer to work properly. The ceramic thing does not produce bubbles and the CO2 seems to go straight into the tube that leads to water to the aquascape. Find attached some pictures.

Does anybody have any experience with this, and knows how to solve this? Btw, in contrast to the pictures, the CO2 installation is now set at a bit above 30 PSI.

Thank you so much,

It looks like you have it configured properly. The glass housing of the ceramic diffuser is actually the CO2 side of the system. Meaning you won't see bubbles form on that side, as it runs it'll actually fill up with CO2. You'd see bubbles form on the inside of the ceramic diffuser cylinder if you could see inside, but you can't for obvious reasons. It's probably working fine. Have you checked your tank outlet to see if it's blowing bubbles out?

Hello TTJ,
This diffuser requires a minimum of 30 psi working pressure. You won't be able to see bubbles coming out from the ceramic diffuser housing. As CO2 bubbles pass through the porous diffuser, they are diffused into streams of mist like bubbles. How is your drop checker? Try to see the outlet of your filter as you will see mist like bubbles coming out from there, sometimes it it hard to see since it is so fine, you can point a flashlight on the outlet of your filter so you can see the mist like bubbles. As for the positioning of your Inline diffuser in your canister filter outlet hose tubing, the logo should be upright towards the aquarium.
