How To Build A Cerges Co2 Reactor

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

    I've never tried it but I did try an inline atomiser with this and it made no difference, so a waste really.

    While it will increase the surface area, the fine bubbles will easily get sucked into the outlet, unless you have some kind of media which disrupts the flow.

    What i can say about this reactor is that i tried both 7 " and 10 " water filter and the 10" dissolves the co2 much better and i think is because the water and co2 travels more and co2 has more time to dissolve in the water .
    I don't have a sponge inside on the tube

    Anyone can confirm that if a sponge is mounted at the end of the tube the CO2 is dissolving better?
    I'm asking someone who tried this not someone who speaks theoretically

    Thanks

    Thank you so much for this post. Its the only post on how to build a ceges reactor that has a list and pictures. I bought most of what i need today, i just need a pump and hoses and im all set. Mine is built with the parts i could find so its not 100% the same. Any thoughts on the pump id need to power this? I was thinking 300gph.
