Perhaps put them on the buy/swap/sell forum. Who knows! you might get a bite from someone who needs some.

A big thanks to the Creator and Contributors of this tread, I just finish building my co2 reactor, and I am looking forward to using it.

I'm getting ready to built a DIY external heater/CO2 reactor all in 1. Have 1/2 the parts and plan on building 2-3 of them. I dont have the idea finalized quite yet but have a good idea with a couple choices yet to be made.

Thanks again for ideas in this thread

Is it possible to use this with DIY Co2 Generators.

Wife will not allow the pressurized ones in the house as it scares here

I doubt that the yeast systems would build up the pressure needed to operate efficiently with this system. But, I've never tried it, so I dunno.

I tend to agree with Neilan. Is your wife afraid of it exploding? Or is it the idea of a co2 leak?

Honestly these are very safe systems. It may be worth your while to try and convince her of that.

So does this require a canister filter to operate? Could I put this on a tank otherwise serviced with a cheap HOB, and get some smaller dedicated pump to run the reactor?

sure you could. It just needs something to move the water

You are on the right track!

In my opinion that is the best way to run this type of reactor. There is no free lunch, adding a reactor will slow down the flow through a canister anyway.

Go for it!

Not a HOB, but a waterpump would do it
