- Feb 20, 2003i'd recommend some forced reflux. if you are going to the bother of
modifying the column then go much higher than 500mm if i was starting
again i would try 2m but i wouldnt bother going less than 1m. if you
insist on no reflux then you will definitely need more height. how
wide is the column, how much power?
