Pressurized Co2 Stopped Working - PLEASE HELP

So, my Co2 system stopped working this weekend. I have a 20lb tank with a Milwaukee Regulator and PH Controller/Monitor.

I can hear the solenoid do something when I unplug/plug, but it's not producing any bubbles.

Any ideas? Please Help

what does the hi pressure guage on your tank read? What pressure are you running the low side at?

Do you have the needle valve closed down not allowing any flow?

Is your system new? sometimes they need to break in a little bit, requiring adjustment on the needlevalve every couple of days until it settles in.

Hi - 50
Low 20
Needle valve was turned out

It was running for 5 months, no problems using the controller to automate.

Then, it just stopped.

The high pressure guage should be reading up in the 100s. A full tank will read around 900psi. I suspect your out of gas. Either youre running a lot of bps or you might have a leak somewhere.
