Help - Bubble counter leak.

Hi all,

I'm just wondering if anyone has a solution to my problem.

When my CO2 switches of at night, after many hours, the bubble counter is filling with water (obviously siphoned down the tube from the reactor). As a result of not being able to get passed the one way check valve into the regulator and co2 tank, the water is leaking between the CO2 inlet connection hose and the inlet connection fitting pipe of the bubble counter.

Does anyone have any tips as to how to stop the siphon of water when the CO2 is switched off?

Thank you.

Hi Andrew. Thank you for your response.

Yes, that is exactly what I ended up doing. I not only have the mandatory check valve between the Co2 tank and the bubble counter, but I have now put a valve between the reactor and the bubble counter.

Thanks again.
