Hi Everyone!
Does anyone knows how to remove the crust on the top layer of the CO2 diffuser (or unblock it) after some period of usage when it will become blocked and the CO2 feeding tube is then forced out of the diffuser due to the pressure created? Would appreciate if anyone can advise me . Thanks. :)/>

There are several types of CO2 diffusers. Could you post a pic?

Hi. This diffuser is the common glass type-U type with the thin straight inlet tube at its side. The main body is shaped like a funnel with a white cicular disc near the top, with a spiral tube inside. Hope this can help. :)/>

You may try soaking in vinegar but may not be worth the time as it may take a while an dtiming is critical. Suggest you change to the ones with "Rolling Balls" inside fat green tube as it better dissolves the CO2.

Hi. Personally i have not seen this type of ball diffusers in the shops that i have visited so far. Perhaps you would care to name one shop that sells it. Thanks. :)/>
