Maximum working pressures for CO2 Art diffusers

Running your diffuser with a working psi rate that is either too low or too high can have negative effects. It is important to understand what is best for your chosen diffuser. Here is a short guide to the recommended maximum psi rates.

10-20PSI - Reactors

20-30PSI - Ceramic and Basic diffusers

30-40PSI - High-pressure atomizers (inline & bazooka)

40-60PSI - Multiple outlets with high-pressure atomizers (inline & bazooka)

Water will be pushed out of the bubble counter's chamber when the working pressure is much higher than your diffuser resistance on each solenoid cycle. This is one of the most common situations we encounter through the support portal.

This was my first regulator. I've always wondered why does it need to be 50psi to even have bubbles come out of the bazooka? It was mentioned running pressure too high has negative effects, I am wondering like what?
