Quick math:

350 GPH in 10G tank = 35 changeovers per hour

60 mins per hour and 35 changeovers means one complete changeover in less than 2 mins.

Wow!

Returning my ISTA 45g CO2. Same problems everyone else has with them.

Manufacturer doesn't make the needle long enough. Another 2mm and it would pierce the cartridge cap.
