CO2 reactor placement

JulzAlph

Hey Pals,
I'm setting up an Aquamedic CO2 Reactor in my 350G tank with a 180G sump.
Do you think it's viable to just add an extra 3000LPH pump into the last chamber of my sump, then position the reactor so it just pumps the CO2 enriched water back into the final chamber for the return pump to push into the tank?
Or should it absolutely be run into the return line?
The return line is plumbed in with PVC pipes and I'm worried about turning it off for long enough to cut/cement/fully cure the addition to the return..
Thoughts?

I looked into putting a reactor in the sump of my 150 gallon. From what I've read, it's doable. You may just need a higher CO2 injection rate. Ultimately though, I opted to place my reactor on my return line.

I ran my co2 for my 180g in the sump .
Never worried about the reactors leaking ...
Get a controller /monitor if you don't have one so you can have real control .
I ran a power head or circulation pump .
The amount of co2 needed made me install 2 reactors in series to minimize micro bubbles .
