Zip ties do help a lot on the hose barbs. I got curious though and switched to the push to connect fittings. Awesome.

Interesting. Do you think it may be a problem with the needle valve?

I guess I am not understanding. When the solenoid closes there may be some pressure build up depending on when ca was last moved to bs. Pressure then equalizes and reaction stops. Open the solenoid...

I gotcha ya. It does need to be adjusted most days as the pressure changes. I thought you were saying the system did not work with a solenoid.

I use a solenoid and it has never been a problem. Works perfect. I still believe that if the system keeps producing pressure when the solenoid closes then there is a leak somewhere.

The kids bubbles work great. I have the best results by using a small foam brush and working up a lather around the fittings. If bubbles increase there is a leak. Best for detecting small leaks.

Sad your still having trouble. One reason I chose the system with the solid bar connecting the bottles was it looked less prone to leaks. Glad I did.

That doesn't make sense. All a solenoid does is stop the flow. If you can't stop the flow how would you get a full canister home. Unless your using a solenoid not rated for the pressure behind it. I...

I still like the solenoid and having it turn off at night. I do make adjustments but they are minor.

If you release alot of pressure quickly the unit needs to equalize pressure. It needs the ca to do that to cover the drop by mixing the ca and bs to recover the pressure losts.

Don't know, but its just spring loaded so I'm confident it will pop before a bottle will break. Maybe that's just wishful thinking.

Mine always seems to rise and peak in the last third or so of a mix life before it drops back down. That's where I am at now with pressure sitting at 5 since yesterday.
