DIY Calcium Reactor

This is the start of the DIY section for a dual chamber calcium reactor.  This reactor is rather large and uses 6" diameter clear acrylic tubing.  Great for larger tank systems but pretty large for fitting in the cabinet under most tanks.  I have completed the design and drawings for a dual 4 1/2" chamber version that is much more compact but haven't had time to convert everything for upload.  Also working on a smaller single chamber version of the calcium reactor.

Bubble Counter The DIY page for a CO2 bubble counter for the Calcium Reactor.  Some pressure gage sets have a bubble counter included so this is an option.  The design can also be modified for a wall mount version.
