Leaking Check valve/Bubble counter

Hey All,

I finally got my JBJ regulator rig assembled and running. I have a problem with the bubble counter leaking. It may even be the check valve itself. I am afraid if I torque the bubble counter any harder I am going to break the damn thing. The threads are not cross threaded or anything. Thoughts? Hints?

This was where my leak was too. I kept checking the connection on both gauges and the one one to the CO2 tank.

I took some loctite to that, between that and the rubber seal, the leak stopped.

if it is still under warranty, send it back they are usually pretty good about replacing their product.
