Default DIY 3D Printed CO2 Diffuser

Hi All,
I have been playing with this idea for about three months, and am now using prototypes in actual use. I don't want to publish something like this on Thingiverse without some sort of peer review. So my first question is:

Is there any interest in a heavy duty CO2 diffuser anyone can make with a 3D printer?

The diffusers I have seen so far on eBay and Amazon don't seem to be worth it. This one uses the standard 3 cm discs I see for sale on eBay. I have some views from Fusion 360 I can show here. Also I have two videos, and a procedural write up. Please comment on what you think.

The in tank view video is here:

Note this features an older version that leaked a bit.

The demo of the individual parts is shown here:

Note at the end of this video I show an experimental 3D Printed diffuser disc, but this is still in development.

The write up of how to make one of these is here:

Sincerely,
Steve Pituch

Nice. Instead of a suction cup, I'd use magnets. You can buy epoxy coated magnets on Ebay & amazon.
