Hey hoppy, thanks much for the help.
BPS: uncountable. But heres the thing you may find interesting, you say to have a stream of bubbles, that Is what I set it for, about 10bps (uncountable really). But after about 10 seconds max, it stops like there is something blocking the exit for the Co2 (diffuser). Now here is my hypothesis, since it Stops after 10 seconds, are the leaks coming from built up pressure due to the diffuser, NOT diffusing? Its an inline diffuser from GLA of course.
Yes using 2dKH water from NilocG
Also here is what GLA said to me after I applied to the pipe dope to the male threads into the female threads: "I would wait for your new oring pack to arrive. Pipe dope really won’t or should not gave any effect on this connection. My best advise is to consult us, vs somebody else because nobody knows our co2 systems like us.
The new prints will fix you. Easy solution.
As for your drop checker being blue, and not enough co2 in water is more than likely due to the amount of co2 off gassing you have.
For example, what filter system do you use? A 65g tank is super easy to saturate with co2. So if you find your having trouble with co2 levels, look as to why your co2 is not staying in solution? Off gassing?
Lastly what diffuser are you using?"
I really think its the diffuser though causing all this, have from the start but no one believes me...
