The pH stabilized at 5.7 (@ KH=4) and never went lower than that. I don't know if the gas accumulation is due to saturation or just ineficiency.
There has been much discussion on what the accumulated gas in reactors actually is. I'm not convinced that it is CO2. Tom Barr indicated that he is working on a venturi design for an external reactor, with the goal being to prevent the accumulation of excess gas. I've yet to here anything specific about his design. The accumulation of excess gas has been the problem that I've encountered with all external reactors, and I was hoping to hear that your design would prevent this. Maybe Tom will chime in to tell us about what he has planned to solve this.

Thanks for sharing your design Nikolay.
