    Hi,

    I made this .pdf a while back on how to build a Do-It-Yourself Carbon Dioxide Generator with common household items.

    Hope you enjoy, it's not very polished but I am open to suggestions for

    That's really clever, i believe that the co2 can be a good ph lowering method also. I'm sure i read that somewhere, don't know whether it's true or not though.lol

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    The DIY CO2 is what most of us use here. I don't silcone my airline, tho. I cut the line at a pointed angle, pull it thru the hole with pliers and that's it. It's very tight and air proof. I also just use a punch to make the hole in the cap.

    Wow, I guess the kiss principal applies here. (Keep It Simple Stupid!)

    I have been drilling and tapping threads into my caps! Thanks for the tip.

    Same, the only tool i use are needle nose plyers, use my lighter to heat up the end cap a little bit (not much) and poke the hole, flip it over and use them to pull the hose through. Done deal

    I use a lot less sugar than most, and i am always experimenting with the mixtures for different tanks. It can be a pita to get the ph you want relatively stable and all that mess.
