JBL PROFLORA CO2 TAIFUN COUNT SAFE
CO2 bubble counter with built-in water backflow protection

  • The bubble counter makes the invisible CO2 gas visible and thus countable. The backflow protection prevents the water from flowing back
  • Fill bubble counter with water, connect with hose to CO2 system and diffuser, fix outside the aquarium with 2 suction cups on the glass or 2 screws on the furniture
  • The bubble counter allows you to control the CO2 supply: if there is too little CO2 in the water, the bubble count can be increased in a controlled manner
  • Safety: hose screw connections prevent accidental loosening of the hoses
  • Package contents: CO2 bubble counter with built-in check valve; holder with 2 suction cups/screws; dimensions: 105/175/40 mm

Product information

Ideal nutrition for plants
Having the right CO2 concentration in the water is hugely important for aquarium plants. Carbon dioxide is the plants’ main nutrient and it fully promotes their growth. Plants use CO2 for photosynthesis and this supplies the water with essential oxygen. They remove pollutants, thus preventing algae growth, provide hiding places and reduce germs.

Easy to install
Fill the bubble counter with water. Use the hose to attach the bubble counter to the pressure reducer or solenoid valve of the CO2 system and to the reactor in the aquarium (CO2 system and diffuser not included). Fix the bubble counter outside the aquarium with 2 suction cups onto the glass or with 2 screws onto the furniture.

Safe
The bubble counter has hose screw connections and is easy to fill and clean thanks to a threaded connection with an O-ring. The correct CO2 amount varies from aquarium to aquarium and depends on the volume, the water movement and the planting. To start, about 10 CO2 bubbles per minute are recommended. The CO2 content in the aquarium water can be checked with the help of a CO2 test (JBL PROAQUATEST CO2-pH Permanent).

The CO2 bubbles are easy to count
A magnifying glass section in the transparent part makes it easier to count the bubbles for a precise dosing of the CO2 quantity.

FAQ
May the JBL PROFLORA CO2 products only be used for the aquarium?

Yes, the JBL PROFLORA CO2 products are designed exclusively for use in the aquarium. The gas contained promotes plant growth and works with fine precision so that even the smallest quantities can be supplied to the aquarium. Constant operation and the safety of the fish are thus guaranteed.

What is the minimum working pressure I need to use the JBL CO2 accessories?

All check valves or backflow protectíons from JBL require a working pressure of at least 0.6 bar for the valve to open. This feature can be found in the JBL PROFLORA CO2 TAIFUN SAFESTOP, COUNTSAFE and INLINE. The JBL PROFLORA TAIFUN diffusers also all already work with this pressure. A higher working pressure is not necessary, which is why all accessories also work with the JBL PROFLORA BIO SETs (except JBL PROFLORA CO2 STARTER BIO SET). Due to installation, a slightly higher working pressure than 0.6 bar may be necessary due to long hoses and other components, which is why the presetting of 1.2 bar is sufficient in any case.

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.

The water is disappearing from my bubble counter – where’s it gone?

The bubble counter with integrated check valve JBL PROFLORA CO2 Count Safe has a check valve on the inlet side into the container. It is located on the IN side with the riser pipe. This prevents water from getting out of the bubble counter in the direction of the CO2 bottle or other attachments in front of it.

For the start-up and after each cleaning, fill the bubble counter with water up to the mark (fig. B in the instructions for use). During operation, the water level in the bubble counter may fluctuate, depending on the amount of CO2 added. A large number of bubbles with high working pressure can cause the water to be displaced from the chamber. It is important that the bubble counter is not installed at an angle so that water can run out. Normally, the water level remains unchanged and should be checked weekly.

Once CO2 stops entering, the water from the aquarium will return to the bubble counter with a time delay. In the bubble counter, the water flow is stopped by the check valve at the inlet (IN). There is therefore no cause for concern. You can quickly detect a defective check valve yourself by noticing water in the hose between the CO2 cylinder and the check valve. Please also refer to the FAQ on the use of two check valves at the same time.

Is my SafeStop damaged if I can’t blow through it?

The retaining spring in the check valve fits very tightly and ensures that no water can return. Therefore the air pressure of a diaphragm pump or our breath is not strong enough to open the spring. The valve can be opened by the pressure of the ProFlora bioCO2 systems and also the m and u series. Check valves used in air systems have a smaller counter-pressure and are also part of the JBL range.

Great bubble counter! It makes the bubbles big in size and it is easy to count them in order to set your CO2 level. Highly recommend it!

Bardzo ładnie wygląda i jest również funkcjonalny. W prosty sposób wszystko możesz odkręcić, napełnić wodą (polecam użyć destylowanej) i zakręcić. Uszczelka jest niezawodna. Węże w prosty sposób przykreca się do licznika i do butli
