This type of device doesn't work with most DIY CO2 systems. It causes some suction in the CO2 line, and that can lead to sucking some of the yeast/sugar water into the tank. A much better way to do this is to stick the CO2 line into the water pump input screen. That doesn't cause any suction, and just lets the natural pressure of the CO2 cause the CO2 to bubble into the pump, where the rotor will chop it up into much smaller bubbles - possibly with some noise.
This is how I get my DIY CO2 into the tank water.
