Calcium Reactor?????

Daft question probably, but here goes...........

I have my Calcium Reactor, CO2 bottle and various pipework..... I have set my regulator to the desired pressure but how do I know the correct amount of CO2 is being delivered? Is this by the bubble counter.....also what drip rate should I be looking at for the return to the system?

Told you it was a daft one !

How/where are you monitoring pH? I don't have a ca reactor, but you can use it to monitor the pH inside the reactor. The more co2, the lower the pH.
