hello..
i am also using a pressurised co2 system for my tank. the pressure in a new cylinder is around 1000psi (2kg capacity) when the ambient temperature is 25-35 deg C. In this condition the cylinder lasts around 3 months in a 2ft tank with approx 3bps. But in the winters when the ambient temperature drops to 10-15 deg C, the pressure of the cylinder drops rapidly and the cylinder barley lasts one month. What is the way out? If the tank is heated, then there are chances that the diaphragm in the regulator will burst causing huge leakage of Co2. Has anyone experienced this problem before?
There's always something fishy & there's always room for more.

I am using a diffuser but could see either I loose some CO2 or the rate of release is low for my 7' tank.

Heard about a "Reactor" which is fit in the inlet to Canister filter and "fully" dissolves the CO2. Any opinion on that and suggestion on where to buy it from?
