So I came home from my vacation of a week, in which the CO2 was off, and my Atomic GLA Inline diffuser is half full of water. I turned up the working pressure to about 35 psi and nothing came out. I was afraid to go any higher or leave it on for fear of disaster/explosion. What should I do?

I would turn it on and be patient. The pressure will more than likely push the water through the porous tube. That's what I found when I used one. You might double check for CO2 leaks. If you have a leak, the pressure will not build up sufficiently to push the water through.

You sure it's not working? The bubbles are seriously small and hard to see. I have to shine a flashlight through the water in my cerges reactor to see them.

I'll echo others, water leaking into it when the co2 is off is normal in my experience.
