CPR Bak-Pak reef setup


Recommended Posts

I picked up a used CPR Bak-Pak with bubble trap here this past weekend and set it up last night. However, no matter how I adjust the air tube I can't seem to generate enough bubbles to flow up into the trap. Any tips on setup?

Make sure the air intake nozzle and air mixing nozzle at the powerheads are clean and clear. On mine, I had "gunk" build up after a few months on the inside where the air tube meets the powerhead, and that was reducing how much air was coming in.

I hope that made sense.

Perfect sense. Even though the line looked clean I replaced it with new airline. Instant bubbles. Thanks!

How bad is it that I can't wait to get home and see how much junk it collected today?
