    Den, I sow few pics you posted that looks like DIY ventui. To comment anything on those we need more details like what you used and some more pics or drawings of parts used. Outside it looks good but that is not what makes them work. Ultimately any comment will depend on final result.
    Can you post any pics of those things in action.

    DIY 1/2" venturi

    Aqua
    I would love to but the batteries in the cammara are dead just had enough power for those 2 pics .
    As far as the constrution of the venturi , its the same as the pic from the URL that you poste for the mazzi .The interior is basicly the same but the exterior is far more durable I machiend it all in my lathe from a solid 1 1/4 plate .
    The boddy is transparent with 2 polished barrels at either end ,you can literaly view the air injecting into the water it kind of neat.. it has a 1/2" to 3/16 by 2 reduction on the intake side , exaust side is 3/16 to 1/2 " taper by 3 " with almost a 0 back pressure for high air to water mixture !!!lots of micro bubbles sofar. I Have a fair size skimmer hooked to this so may need some more fine tuning!!!

    I definetly will keep you posted on the updates of this project.
    Or you ask Ivan or harley as they will also be testing them for me so we can get an unbyous opinion about the performance of these venturis!
    Dont want anyone unhappy with this ,so wejust have to be certain its going to do the task its supposed to before hand
    THANKS :biggrinbo
