Anybody running an Aqua-Medic Reactor 1000? I'm starting to assemble my pressurized CO2
system and would like to mount the reactor in-line with the filter outlet plumbing. Problem is, the filter uses 5/8" tubing and the reactor uses 1/2". I can't find any listings for replacement parts or alternate size fittings.
I will drill and tap for new barb fittings if I must, but I'm concerned about durability going that route. carbonic acid reactions with any epoxies or plastics? I would use either brass or PVC
for the new fittings.
Another option is to use a 1/2-to-5/8 barb transition with a short length of hose, but again, I'm concerned about the carbonic and also the restriction.
If you have plumbed this unit in-line with a 5/8 hose, how did you do it?
