Bro Octane, you are using the denitrator on your aro tank! Do share with us the results. Is it a newly installed unit?
It is not a coil denitrator. It uses the same principle as those commercial unit.
Yes, the height can be reduce but it will lower down the processing capacity and thus the output flowrate will be reduce too.

1 moment to lazy to do. Next moment thinking of doing a gaint unit!

6 footer can but the diameter can increase to 10' and that going to be expensive for the end cap n screw cap (if you can find that size).

When the ORP value get lowered, that means the denitrator is working, right? Where do you insert the ORP probe?

You might need 2 units of 1m tall denitrator to do that. There is a commercial unit that is this height, NR5000 from aquamedic.
How much would a NR5000 cost? It is cheaper to DIY?
