Diffuser CO2 and water flow directions

I have the water coming in from the top and the CO2 coming in from the bottom. The bubbles flow up against the current and I seem to get great pearling. My question is I have seen lots of pics of people having the water come in the top and also the CO2. It seems to me that the CO2 would just flush right throuh without any reaction with the water???

in theory your waterflow wont be high enough to eject the co2 before it dissolves. the point of the reactor is to dissolve all the co2 before the water enters the tank. whether its left to right or top to bottom the goal is to dissolve it all.
