    I was having an issue with my calcium reactor. It turned out that my CO2 check valve (one way valve) was clogged.

    What is the life span on / failure rate on these? Is this something I should replace on an annual basis?

    Thanks

    Sorry to hear you're having an issue with your Calcium Reactor..... you talking about the check valve between your Co2 regulator and the Calcium Reactor? there's no water going through it, only Co2. What was it clogged with?

    Not sure what it was clogged with. Should just be CO2 going through it. My guess is when I shut the system down and o e side gets wet could bacteria be growing?

    Probably going to try and cut it open to see if I can tell what is going on. I even hooked it up to my big air compressor. It is blocked solid.
