Pressurized Co2 - Low Pressure Question (Milwaukee Regulator

So my Co2 system has been setup since Monday and all has been well so far. However, I noticed this morning that the low pressure reading had about doubled from 10 psi to 20 psi. Is this a cause for concern?

If so, how do I release/control the pressure buildup?

Milwaukees are known to "seat" over the first few days and will change pressure during that time. I run 30 psi on my low side so I see no problem with 20.

20 is no problem, in fact should give you more stability with the needle valve than 10 psi. I run mine between 20-30.
