HELP bubble count co2 system
 
Hey,
I have a marine tank with a minireef filter system, and a calcium reactor, Redsea CO2 regulator, a JBL solenoid valve, pin valve, check valave and CO2 cylinder.
My CO2 system is JBL PROFLORA CO2.

I set the bubble count around 1 bubble per second to 1 bubble every 1.5 seconds but the bubble release speed always decreases. This happens over time and sometimes the bubbles completely stop and if i dont check that it has been stopped, the entire system will generally die.
Is this normal? How do I get the bubbles to release at a constant speed and not stop?

Thanks for the help.

Is it possible you have debris in the tubing? The needle valve would be especially sensitive to this.

Also since you are running a PH controller you could turn the bubble count up more to see if a little added pressure helps.
