They sell the exact same one on Ali express.

I've seen them in action. I've been speaking to a guy in the states and he uses them. He says they work very well and they're the same as gla.
I will consider it ;) many thanks for the video link :)

easy to setup and no leaks so far, and for the first time ever I have managed to get my drop checker yellowish with a much lower bubble rate!!

Happy days :) thanks for the recommenadation @Krisps21 :thumbup::clap:

Not yet, I do have a flood sensor next to it just in case ;)

Also means no more cleaning diffurors and crap! If you have the space for one (you do) I would recommend it :)

Nice! Looks a fairly well made bit of kit - any chance of a video of it working? Also, do you get much gas collection at the top, as it look likes the elbow outflow sits an inch or so below the top?

Also, how much drop off in filter flow have you noticed - my 20" filter housing reactor has a big impact on the flow on my Oase 850.

I did post a video on my instagram stories a couple of days back but now its gone lol see if I can upload it somewhere else!
Does build a little at the top and there is the occasional blurp but not that noticeable to be honest, from everything I tested so far this one is the best performer, but you need to clear all the air from it when you clean filter etc... best way I found was to put the reactor horizontally until all the air is out of it (careful you don't mess up the pipe work) and then put it back vertically again, so the only thing that builds up in there is then CO2 as the air won't disolve!

I have not noticed much reduction in flow, filter is quite powerful though.
