I decided to make a journal for my 10" cerges reactor build to make it easier for members to make one themselves.

Its the first time i've made one myself so if you see any mistakes or recommend any improvements that can be made please post them :D

Most information i got by reading lots of posts on various forums and watching various videos (thanks Gerry)

OK lets start with my plan (please correct me if you see any problems here)


and now on with the shopping list.

1 x 10" Water Filter Housing with 3/4" Brass threaded BSP Ports and a Pressure Release Valve.

1 x 1/2 Inch 90 Degree Tee BSP Threaded PVC Pipe Fitting for the co2 hose barb

2 x 3/4 x 1/2 Inch BSP PVC Reducing Nipple Pipe Fittings to reduce the 3/4 housing ports to 1/2 fittings

2 x 1/2 Inch 90 Deg Elbow BSP Threaded PVC Pipe Fitting for the filter hose barbs

2 x 1/2 Inch Hexagon Nipple BSP PVC Pipe Fitting to connect the elbows

2 x Hose Tail End Barb Connector - Hose Internal dia (Bore): 12mm (1/2") BSP Thread size: 1/2 (for the filter 12/16mm tubing)

1 x Hose Tail End Barb Connector - Hose Internal dia (Bore): 5mm (3/16") BSP Thread size: 1/2 (for the co2 tubing)

1 x Hair Bun Sponge to place around the internal piping and help break down the larger bubbles (is this needed? we will see)

i will also need some piping for inside of the housing that i will add to the list once the housing arrives and i know what size i will need.

The build..
