How do I dispose of my empty CO2 cylinders?

Once empty, CO2 cylinders can simply be recycled.

Why has the output on my new CO2 set diminished even after changing cylinders?

We advise you to replace the diffuser as the ceramic disc has a life expectancy of 3-6 months. The replacement disc can be easily ordered.

What bubble count should I factor when using your CO2 system?

To maximize the lifespan of your CO2 cylinder, we suggest a bubble count of approximately one bubble every 2-4 seconds. This should deliver adequate CO2 in moderately planted tanks.

I installed a CO2 system a few days ago and one of the cylinders is already empty. Is this normal?

No. At a bubble every few seconds, the canister should last approximately 2-3 weeks. It is possible some CO2 escaped while adjusting the unit or attaching the CO2 cylinder. Verify if the regulator is leaking at the cylinder connection: it may simply require further tightening. To inspect for possible leaks at the gauge connection, remove the unit and apply soapy water to the connections, allowing you to see if any bubbles are being produced.

How do I dispose of my empty CO2 cylinders?

Once empty, CO2 cylinders can simply be recycled.

What is the hosing of your CO2 kit made from?

The hosing is made from silicone.

I am starting to inject CO2 into my planted tank. Should I remove carbon from my filter?

Yes, activated carbon can remove trapped gasses, including carbon dioxide.

My new ceramic CO2 diffuser disc is emitting large bubbles, rather than a fine mist. Is this normal?

Yes, new ceramic CO2 diffuser discs can take up to a week to begin emitting pressurised CO2 in a fine mist. It’s normal to see larger bubbles for the first few days of operation.
