    Hi everyone
    I know this is a topic that has been discussed quite intensely on this site and on others but I've only really seen DIY projects. So I decided to play around with some ideas. This is very rough and incomplete.
    So the goal is to get as close to 100% diffusion as rapidly as possible. As you can see it's a pretty standard reactor. However I was thinking about using a venturi to introduce the CO2 into the water just before the reactor with the burp valve running back via a T to the venturi creating a loop so that nothing is wasted. In my mind this should increase the rate of diffusion in the reactor. In the case of this not working as I though there are the options of an impella in the reactor or bio balls.
    Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated. CO2_LI.jpg
