Hi All,
Was wondering if anyone has had experiences with the Quanvee Inline diffuser? Got mine all hooked up and CO2 turned on, but don't see bubbles, mist, or anything. My pressure gauge reads 40 psi, so it should be OK. Am I missing something? Thank you.

If you unhook the CO2 from the atomizer, is gas actually flowing?

And assuming you are not seeing any sort of pH drop or any other, non-visual, indication that it is working?

No it's not! The damn needle valve was hung up! Thank you very much for simplifying and solving this thing. Had spent a lot of time and effort chasing this problem. Since I never saw any bubbles during the week I had the CO2 line running straight into the filter, perhaps my plants had been starving for carbon all that time. Or else I somehow upset the needle valve during all of my tinkering while setting up the inline system.

No problem..

And I doubt they really starved too much for CO2, but glad it's sorted now, before real issues happened
