Did you build the bubbler? Would you still use copper scrub pads with it ?

Hi grunt, yes I built it. They don't really need scrubbers, I guess it would clean the distillate up a bit more. The common thing on plates columns now days is a lava rock packed section, it's had great results. im yet to try it, will be soon though when i finish the extra 2 modules so irs a 5 plater. are you thinking of building one?.

cheers
