I there, I did a search on this and didn't find quite what I was looking for. I am looking to put an inline reactor/diffuser on my outlet tube of my tetratec EX600 external filter.
I have a bubble counter, so don't really want to spend the money of that one you can get from Aqua Essentials.
I was thinking that if I had a T bar, put it between the outlet piping and attached the CO2 tubing to it as well that this should be fine - what do you think?
I'm guessing I might also need to put a stop valve in as well?

thankyou in advance for any advice

Hi and welcome to UKAPS,

Your idea should work OK but isn't the best way to do it - cheap though. As long as there is enough filter tubing for the bubbles of CO2 to dissolve it will work. What you don't want are large bubbles of CO2 coming out the end of the filter tube. And yes, you definitely need a non return valve.
