| | question concerning new reactor?
I just got in a Red Sea CO2 reactor 200, and began to use it and it seems that the co2 is leaking out of the seal. There is the circular piece of cintered class and then a seal that is around the out side top diamiter and then the plastic top to the reactor. Now there are big co2 bubbles escaping out on the paramiter of the reactor just between the cintered glass and the seal. My theory is that the seal is not quit thick enough and is allowing the escape of co2. (This being my first micro bubble reactor) Is there a break in period of any kind?
Thanks for all the words of wisdom and help.
