Product information

Easy installation
The diffuser is suitable for all common CO2 systems. Connection to CO2 hose with 4/6 mm. Mount the diffusor with suction cups in the aquarium. The right amount of CO2 is different for each aquarium and depends on the volume, water movement and planting of the aquarium. The CO2 content can be checked by means of a CO2 test.

Reactors/diffusers:
In the aquarium, the CO2 gas should now be dissolved in the water so that it is available to the plants as staple food. For this purpose there are several possibilities available: In the JBL PROFLORA TAIFUN P a ceramic disc forms the connection to the water. The CO2 is pressed through in tiny bubbles and dissolves in the aquarium water on its way to the surface. For this reason, diffusers should always be placed as low as possible below the water surface. The only exception is the JBL PROFLORA DIRECT, which is integrated into the water-returning hose from the external filter. It also has a ceramic membrane through which the CO2 enters the water and dissolves on its way from the filter back into the aquarium.
In the JBL PROFLORA TAIFUN S5 and M the CO2 bubbles rise upwards as in a round parking garage driveway and dissolve in the parking garage i.e. in the aquarium water. A residual of bubbles still reaches the top, but it hardly contains any CO2. On its way up the bubble has also absorbed gases from the aquarium water (O2 etc.). So don't worry about wasting too much CO2! For the very concerned, the bubble remains are collected in a chamber at the top. Both diffusers TAIFUN S5 and M can be extended with modules (JBL PROFLORA TAIFUN Extend) if your aquarium requires more CO2 or if you are changing to a larger aquarium. Their length is only limited by the aquarium height.

FAQ
How can I remove the hose from the device?

At first the air hoses and special CO2 hoses can easily be pushed on the connection piece. The hoses harden more and more as the months go on and can only be removed from the connection piece using great force. If you pull the hose hard it will only strain the connection, which could, in the worst case, even break off. Instead cut the hoses you want to remove laterally at the ends and carefully remove them. For this it’s always advisable to install hoses with some reserve in its hose length.

Why don’t the CO2 bubbles dissolve after reinstallation / cleaning?

After reinstallation the bubbles move only haltingly through the diffuser and sometimes merge into large bubbles. The device needs approx. 48 hours to set up! After that a bio-film will have formed on the surface of the device, allowing the bubbles to rise freely upwards. After the running in time the required bubble count will adapt itself for your aquarium.

The clips of the JBL Taifun reactor are broken. What can the reason for this be ?

The clips are made of plexiglass and therefore wear very slowly. Excessive stretching or pulling can however strain the material. It is therefore important to remove the reactor by pulling it forward and not sideways. The breaking of the clips is a sign of over-stretching.

The CO₂ bubbles in the JBL ProFlora Taifun rise very quickly but do not decrease in size much. Large bubbles escape from the top of the Taifun at short intervals.

Please extend the JBL ProFlora Taifun by using extension modules (JBL ProFlora Taifun Extend). Too many bubbles are being added for this reactor and the overall height. The extension extends the reaction path and the CO₂ dissolution improves.
