C02 help

Everyday I have to check my CO2 cause my BPS drops down to the point where my drop checker turns blue. I have red sea regulator and a red sea bubble counter. I had no issues until I went from a 5 lb container to a 20lb I have checked for leaks and I have none. Can someone please help me.

Do you still have the 5lb? If so, have you tried going back to it and see if it works correctly then?

My guess is that there may be something wrong with the 20 lb tank if everything else is the same. Should be the same presure exiting the tank so that shouldn't effect the BPS.

That or some kind of dirt got stuck in the regulator (like dirt or something) during the change. Have you taken it off to look for any extra debry?

I took the solenoid and that seems to have fixed the issue
