@soumyadipta i would like to state that the top layer is river sand treated with acid for a day. It is done to neutralize the alkalinity of sand.
@rohan ,it is a ceramic diffusor for diy generated CO2. but there is a trick in it .u need to have the right proportion to generate enough pressure.my mixture runs only for about a week until i discard it.Using a pinch more of yeast will solve the the problem.

For one week the DIY is good, changing the solution in home every week is bit of a problem. Neighbours may suspect that you are culturing "desi wine (chullu)". :mrgreen:

And also stabilising the flow of co2.

Typical Avik. go to toilet.... Empty the bottol directly in Comod. No smell nothing.
