Product information

Ideal nutrition for plants
The right CO2 concentration in the water is of great importance for the aquarium plants. Carbon dioxide is the main nutrient for plants and promotes their growth. Plants use the CO2 for the photosynthesis and thus supply the water with essential oxygen. They prevent algae growth, remove pollutants, provide hiding places and reduce pathogens.

Economical and direct
This practical CO2 direct diffuser saves a diffuser in the aquarium, a bubble counter and a check valve. It even saves 20 % CO2 thanks to its ingenious functioning. All that is needed is an external filter with a suitable hose connection.

Easy to install
In order to ensure that the CO2 gas passes as far along the inside of the hose as possible, the direct diffuser needs to be integrated into the hose as close as possible to the external filter. A vertical mounting position will ensure the best readability of the bubble counter.

FAQ
Should I use several check valves on my CO2 installation?

True to the motto, better safe than sorry, some aquarists install several check valves in the same circuit. For example, if you use the JBL PROFLORA direct inline diffuser or the JBL PROFLORA CO2 Count Safe bubble counter, you already have an integrated check valve. If you also use a separate check valve (JBL PROFLORA SafeStop), there may be problems with the opening of the check valves. This effect can be observed if, after the night switch-off or interruption of the supply with the controller, the addition does not restart automatically. Please note that, depending on the working pressure and the number of bubbles, a few minutes may pass between the start of the supply and the visible entry of CO2 into the aquarium.
Each spring in a check valve needs a certain pressure to be opened. Several springs can therefore interfere with each other and, depending on the distance between the two check valves, reduce the pressure at the spring to such an extent that it remains closed. Therefore, please always use only one check valve for your CO2 installation.

How much water should there be in the bubble counter of the inline diffuser?

The bubble counter of the JBL PROFLORA® Direct diffuser is filled with water and screwed to the body © as shown in figure B of the instructions for use. During operation, water level fluctuations may occur in the bubble counter, depending on the amount of CO2 added. A large number of bubbles with high working pressure can displace the water from the chamber. Once the addition stops, water will enter the chamber again with a time delay. If the membrane is dirty, the chamber will remain empty. Cleaning the membrane is necessary, as described in the other FAQs.

Is too much CO2 lost when the diffuser is at the water surface?

You don't have to worry. The gas exchange at the water surface with our breathing air, which also contains CO2, is very important for the aquarium environment. The diffuser should therefore move the water surface and thus promote gas exchange and prevent a build-up of surface scum. Most of the CO2 is already dissolved in the water column coming from the external filter. The membrane of the JBL PROFLORA Direct atomises the CO2 into fine bubbles which are carried along with the flow and dissolve in the hose. Unlike reactors, the bubbles here are very fine and light. The part that is not yet dissolved then swirls around in the aquarium as it drifts in and continues to dissolve. It is normal and unavoidable that some of the bubbles "pop out" at the surface. Nevertheless, this method is very effective.

What working pressure does the ProFlora direct need?

We recommend a working pressure of 1.0 – 1.5 bar.

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.

Idealer Diffusor für alle, die wenig Platz im Aquarium haben oder so wenig Technik wie möglich innerhalb des Aquariums / Aquascapes haben wollen (wegen der Optik).

Ich verwende seit ca. 2 Jahren den Inline Diffusor in Kombination mit dem e902 Filter und e300 Heizer an meinem 125l Becken und bin sehr begeistert.

-->Gebrauchsfertige Auslieferung.

-->Man muss lediglich die Membran 24 Wässern

-->Seltene Reinigung notwendig

-->Nicht hörbar

-->Gute Ersatzteilversorgung

-->Integrierter Blasenzähler

Viele Grüße

Man liest sehr viel über Probleme mit dem Gerät. Ich kann das nicht bestätigen. Ich habe festgestellt daß die Membran manchmal einen leichten Grat aufweist. Die Auflagefläche zur Dichtung könnte also nicht immer ganz optimal sein. Mit etwas Sandpapier kann man das beheben. Dann ist es auch wichtig den Diffusor !vorsichtig! bis zum Anschlag zuzuschrauben. Ich habe die Gewinde und Dichtungen auch noch mit geeignetem Mittel geschmiert. Alles ist gut. Super Gerät. Dann noch was zu den Bläschen. Es kommen immer welche raus. Das liegt daran das der Osmotische Druck in Beide Richtungen wirkt. Aus der CO2 Blase diffundiert Gas ins Wasser, zugleich Kommt gelöstes Gas vom Wasser in die Blase. Das nennt man "Falschgas". Diese Bläschen erkennt man daran das sie nicht mehr kleiner werden. Eventuelle Undichtigkeiten vom Schlauchanschluss kann man mit Kabelbindern verhindern.

Sehr empfehlenswert, wenn man auf die Optik von einem Diffusor im Becken verzichten will/kann. Alles ist dicht. Kein Wasser oder CO2 tritt aus. Durch den Einsatz von dem Inlinediffusor spart man etwas Gas, da es länger im aus strömenden Wasser gelöst wird. Durch den Einbau im Unterschrank verschwindet wieder ein künstliches Bauteil aus dem Sichtbereich im Becken.

Toller Inline Diffusor!

Perfekt für alle Becken die mit einem Außenfilter betrieben werden!

Jeder, der sichtbare Technik vermeiden möchte, sollte bei diesem Produkt zuschlagen. Der Inlinediffusor löst das CO2 zu fast 100% auf, sodass im Becken nichts mehr zu sehen ist. Geschweige denn ein extra Diffusor. Die Verarbeitung ist gut, die Membrane tauschbar. Was möchte man mehr. Die Montage ist dank der Anleitung ebenfalls ein Kinderspiel.
