C02 with solenoid shut off


I just setup c02 in my tank. I have a regulator with solenoid. when it shuts off there is still a small trace of c02 coming out of the diffuser. Am I doing something wrong? or is this normal. There are no bubbles coming out of the bubble counter.

For how long does CO2 come out of the diffuser after the solenoid is shut off? To some degree, some gas is expected for a bit (maybe 15-30 minutes at most) after the solenoid shuts off.

If there is no gas coming from the bubble counter after the solenoid shuts off, it indicates that the solenoid is still working.
