DIY Co2

I set up a DiY Co2 last night and the A bottle is empty already less then 12 hours later. Should I add new citric acid and baking soda, is there a leak somewhere or am I doing something wrong?Click image for larger version

See you bought the same system as me. I know your exact problem. Everything drained from bottle A into bottle B. Remove the hose in bottle A that has the little round white thing on it. Bam done. Don't know what the manufacturers of that system were thinking.

Ohhh I forgot you were doing the citric co2. Sorry. I'm used to the yeast system.

I would check for leaks in the connectors and lid. Not sure if you can use Teflon tape but it might help.
