The only downside I would see is the pressure loss. My diy reactor is two feet tall and is powered by my sun sun canister. I love it. I would say 95% co2 diffusion.
what size tank do you have that working onHere's my personal co2 reactor. It's been running for more than a year now with excellent results:
I recently attached a bubble counter:
what size tank do you have that working on
How long is it and what size pipe you usingUsing it on my 55g tank:
Also wondering how much noise does it make?
I would imagine not much?

i was under the impression that the water level should never be low in the reactor so please explain the high/low switch. I have not seen that on a dyi reactor beforeTry this... smaller quiet design, lower water flow and fully saturated CO2 water on the outflow...and self regulating CO2 solenoid, bubble counter not needed.
The principle of CO2 absorption is that the rate is driven by surface area achieved by a thin liquid film on the media. The other factor is that the liquid film should be rapidly replaced (reasonable water flow) on the media (it has to do with the much slower diffusion of CO2 in water than in air).i was under the impression that the water level should never be low in the reactor so please explain the high/low switch.
