Holding steady at 40psi, now...
I set it up on Thursday @40psi. When I got up on Friday it had dropped to 35psi. Is this normal?? Turned it back up to 40psi and it seems to be stable now. Maybe everything was just settling in.
I have been running 2-3bubbles/sec for 24hrs and my drop checker has a very faint green color to it. At a glance I would say it is blue. 90gal with a 20gal sump = roughly 100gals as there is rocks and substrate which would displace the water so it would be less then a true 110gals of water. Do I just keep dialing it up until the checker is a true green and really just ignore the bubble/sec rate?
My other question is about the CO2
indicator solution. I bought the premixed which tells me to put 1.5ml into the checker. I built my own checker and I made it to fill up with 5ml of liquid, 1.5ml just barley covers the bottom of the checker... Does the amount of liquid in the checker affect the reading or would it simply slow down how long it takes to change color?
