The reactors will probably do a better job of mixing the co2 into the water. In other words you can achieve the co2 saturation you want with less co2. I use diffusers because I like fizz look and I havnt heard of any substantial savings by using the reator vs diffuser. The reactors are more $ and have moving parts (in some) that can go wrong. If you want the diffuse, then you can soak it overnight when its not on. Myself I just soak them in bleach till it clears up the algae or what ever else is on there. Usually about 15 minutes. Then about every two months I do an over night soak. One more thing about the reactors you can always do a diy one. Thereare plenty of diy plans online to choose from
