    All of the sudden I have had to increase my CO2 flow A LOT... I was trying to troubleshoot some things today and just for kicks I put a sweetwater diffuser on the end and put it in the tank to see if the pressure was ok. It nearly stopped bubbling out of the diffuser but the CO2 bubble rate through the bubble counter was WAY too many to count... almost a continous stream of CO2. I think I have a CO2 leak in my tubing... what do you all think?? Also, when connected to my external reactor, the reactor stops unless I crank the CO2 WAY up...

    Sounds like a reasonable deduction. I had a similar problem with my DIY CO2 -- 3 2L bottles and very little coming out. I started turning the taps off on bottles and one of them had a leak at the cap where the tube went in. Not much of a leak, but under pressure the CO2 can sure escape.
