Bubble counter water problem

Hey guys,

Im having some trouble with my bubble counter in my Co2 set up. Im using a Dazs Beetle Counter Set with a glass Rhinox 1000 diffuser and glass non return valve. Everything works fine when the gas is flowing but when it shuts off with the solenoid at night, water from inside the counter syphons out of it?

Am I doing something wrong?


Cheers,
Calum.

Where is your bubble counter in the co2 line?

Most people use two, one between the bubble counter and solenoid, this is where you need one to avoid water getting inside the reg and damaging it.

Then another between the tank and bubble counter.


Cheers Gordon.

my set up is

Solenoid > non return valve > bubble counter > diffuser.

Some times water does get past the valve.

Still having the same problem :(

I thought maybe its just something dodgey in my set up so i changed the rhinox diffuser to a jbl ladder diffuser and replaced the check valve, but i still get up in the morning to find my check valve filled with water??
