Default inline heater and inline reactor

Looking to build an inline reactor, shall I place it before or after my inline heater. Both would be on the positive side of my pump.

Shouldn't matter. I've got my reactor before my heater, but no real reason for it.

Same here, and I would agree that it shouldn't really matter. No issues at all

I have mine reactor after my heater, two reasons (not sure if it's valid or just in my head)

Warmer water dissolves CO2 better and CO2 corrodes most things, but in truth, I doubt that it really matters

If you look at it the other way around, the heated water has further trip before it enters your tank

Ouch, I think I just hurt my little brain
