yeah, it seems counterintuitive at first - but try it and you may be surprised.
I don't think its been established that totally dissolved CO2 is any better (or even as good as) microbubbles entering the plant beds. I ran reactors for many years. Done with them now. I used mazzei injection for a while, its very nice but not so easy to install and tune. I like needlewheel injection of CO2 because its repeatable, consistent, easy to set up and high performing. I'm actually using less gas now.

honestly, I just use google when I'm looking for parts and rarely keep links. Google knows all.
