    DE even if the CO2 reactor is below the water level in the tank something has to cause an inbalance in pressure between the two. In other words if you just took tube and connected two tanks of water and one was lower than the other it wouldn't start a syphon. It would take me to long to explain the rest of this and it would be very boring. So blah blah blah blah and blah there. Happy Easter every one.

    No problem DE, glad to hear it worked out well for you. I'm guessing you probably put a little too much water in the 2 liter bottle?

    That must be it--the water is a few inches below the tube. I think what's happening is the yeast fluid condenses into droplets which enter the tube and are slowly pushed up into the tank along with the CO2.

    Thanks, both.

    After reading these posts I started my first CO2 reactor. I went to the petstore and got a back flow preventer, they are used to prevent water from flowing into the air pump in case of power failure. I got the one that does not use a piston and installed as if the water was the air pump and the reactor was the water. It seams to be working OK.

    havron,

    I emptied our some of the yeasty fluid. Think the extra will taste good on tomorrow's scrambled eggs? ;-)
