    Hi all,

    I'm re-setting up an old tank of mine and I'm at the point of choosing all my equipment. I want to have an inline CO2 reactor but having looked at a lot on the market and the DIY designs that a lot of them have 90 degree elbows both entering and exiting the inline reactor chamber. Why is this so common, surely it reduces flow and a strainght input and output would be preferrable? Is it a space issue?

    Thanks
    Tony

    Quite simply, yes. It's also easier to plumb in if you have the reactor in a cupboard.

    Make your own and then you can have any design you want to reduce the loss of flow!
