Product information

Nutrition for aquarium plants
Plants provide the aquarium with vital oxygen for your aquarium inhabitants, prevent algae growth, remove pollutants, provide hiding places and reduce pathogens. The JBL plant fertiliser system supplies the plants with the main nutrient CO2 through the water. The plants absorb this and convert it into sugar and oxygen in photosynthesis with the help of light.

Easy to install
The system comes completely ready to connect. Screw the pressure reducer onto the CO2 storage cylinder and connect it by hose to the bubble counter (incl. backflow protection) and then to the reactor in the aquarium. CO2 thus enters the aquarium and is dissolved in the water with the help of the reactor. The CO2 supply can be interrupted at night by the interposed solenoid valve (night switch-off). The CO2/pH Permanent Test permanently indicates the amount of CO2 dissolved in the water and can then be readjusted if necessary.

Safe
Thanks to the check valve no water can enter the cylinder. The capacity of a CO2 system depends on various factors. The carbonate hardness, the quantity and species of the plants and the strength of the water surface movement are decisive. A 500 g cylinder which is not switched off by a solenoid valve during the night lasts for about 4 months in its default setting.
The recyclable CO2 disposable cylinders can be purchased individually or in a cheaper 3-pack.

Conversion from disposable to reusable cylinders and vice versa:
All JBL CO2 pressurised gas cylinder systems are compatible with each other. With the reusable system (M system), the union nut of the pressure reducer can simply be unscrewed with an Allen key. The pressure reducer then fits the U system (disposable cylinders). If you have a disposable system, you can make the pressure reducer suitable for refillable cylinders (M system) by screwing on the u-m adapter.

FAQ
Do you need a tool to assemble the pressure reducer?

No, a tool is not required and should not be used under any circumstances. The use of a tool can lead to damage. You can mount the pressure reducer on the CO2 cylinder with your hands. Turn only until you feel resistance and then turn about half a turn more. This way the pressure regulator fitting is hand-tight. A short hissing sound will be heard when attaching the fitting to disposable cylinders.

Is a tool needed to adjust the CO2 quantity?

No, a tool should never be used. The use of a tool can lead to damage. There is a thin spike at the tip of the needle valve. If the needle valve is closed clockwise and turned too tightly or with a tool, it may break off and damage the pressure regulator.

The working pressure on the pressure gauge does not change

When you adjust the working pressure, the CO2 addition needs to be running actively, otherwise the change will not be immediately visible in the event of a reduction. An increase is also visible without running CO2, but not immediately. That’s why you need to ensure that CO2 is added during the adjustment process for every reduction or increase.

The pressure reducer cannot be removed

Your system is probably still under pressure. Close the cylinder valve and remove the CO2 hose from the pressure regulator fitting. Open the regulating screw and release the pressure still present in the pressure regulator until both pressure gauges show 0 bar. Loosen the connecting nut of the pressure regulator fitting from the cylinder valve.

Is it normal that the working pressure fluctuates minimally and decreases towards the end of the cylinder filling?

Yes, this behaviour is normal. The CO2 is liquefied under pressure in the gas cylinder. At 20° C it is 57 bar. If the content decreases slowly and the temperature drops/rises, it may also have an effect on the working pressure. Check the cylinder pressure, as the cylinder is probably almost completely empty.

What factors lead to perfect plant growth?

Vigorous and healthy plant growth in the aquarium is of course never based on just one factor. It is always the interplay of light, heat, fertiliser and the main nutrient carbon dioxide (CO2).

Super Produkt.

Vor allem der neue Druckminderer mit Nachtabschaltung macht einen sehr wertigen Eindruck und ist zudem sehr chic.

und wenn man mal auf eine Mehrwegflasche umrüsten möchte, benötigt man lediglich den Anschlussadapter und muss nicht einen kompletten Druckminderer kaufen.

Super Konzept zur Nachhaltigkeit. Macht weiter so 👍

Ein Mega schickes Set mit allem Zubehör welches man zum sofortigen Start brauch. Sehr gute Verarbeitung. Präzise Einstellungen sind auch gut und leicht vorzunehmen.

Auch durch die breite Zubehör und Nachrüstpalette eine Top Variante um sein Becken noch schöner werden zu lassen.

Alles in allem sehr empfehlenswert und deshalb 5 Sterne.

Ich nutze das JBL Proflora seit einiger Zeit und ich bin sehr zufrieden mit der CO2.

Der JBL Regulator Professionel, der in dem Set enthaltenen ist, lässt sich sehr präzise einstellen und macht einen sehr wertigen Eindruck, so wie man das von JBL gewohnt ist.

Der JBL Taifun löst das CO2, sodass ich selbst beim 200L Aquatium einen geringen Verbrauch habe.

Der regulator macht einen sehr hochwertigen Eindruck und sieht dazu noch super elegant aus. Alle Regler bewegen sich geschmeidig und die CO2 Zufuhr lässt sich präzise einstellen. Das komplette Set ist in wenigen Minuten ohne Werkzeug im gesamten Becken betriebsbereit eingerichtet. Wer seine Flaschen lieber selbst füllt, der kann mit dem zusätzlich erhältlichen Adapter auch Mehrwegflaschen anschließen.
