Has anyone experienced a change of rate in the bubbling when the solenoid kicks on after the night that it was closed?? This happened to me this morning after all the crazy problems i had. It seemed the flow went much higher.I reset it and then tested it by unplugging the solenoid and waiting 1/2 hour in the off position.Then turned it back on and the flow stayed the same.Left me a little worried.

Maybe someone accidentally bumped the one of the knobs on the tank. or, If your tank is getting near the end(check your high pressure guage) The regulator may begin to dump CO2. This usually isn't a major problem if your pressure reg is set above 40-50 psi and the needle valve is adjusted to this pressure. The problem arrises when you try to adjust the flow by lowering the pressure instead of using the needle valve to do so.
