Default CO2 DIY

Mine runs into my power filter.. Works great because the impeller chops
the bubbles quite nicely to allow it to diffuse more easily. Of course
for me, the downside is the splashing and surface turbulence, but I'm
fine with that for now.

Some say that it may lower the life of the filter since it's not
designed to have that burst of air every few seconds, but I don't notice
any side effects.

I have read a little on DIY CO2 injectors, and want to make one when I
eventually buy an aquarium.
I read that the tube from the plastic bottle is connected to the intake tube
of the filter.
Will this not pull the yeast/sugar/water mix from the bottle into the
filter?As I was thinking of buying a canister type filter

How exactly is this DIY CO2 kit setup?

Thank you for any help you are able to give .

You need to leave an air gap between the yeast/sugar/water solution
and the top of the bottle. The filter won't be able to pull the
solution out of the bottle then. I have my airline running straight
into my Fluval 404 with no problems.

How do you have running "into" your filter?
