Just my thoughts no real proof but I would think that the balloon would be to porous to hold CO2 very long. Plus I think that CO2 would degrade the balloon fast. Just my thought I am interested in if it works.

basicly the idea as a whole is GREAT but we need something that will expand when pressure is added but return to its org. shape and push any gas in it back out when an available path is open.......

ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS???

This has been discussed in this forum before and I do believe people had problems with std rubber ballons. You might try a Mylar balloon with a pressure relief valve. There was some discussion on using a bladder type assembly.
