Blip in Bubble Counter

There seems to be a slight blip with the bubbles....every 3rd bubble or so, it looks like two come out at once.

It's like 1, 2, 3, 45. 1, 2, 3, 45 and so on.

Now, I've been running a 10lb bottle @ 2.5-3 bps for the last 8 1/2 months, and it's almost about time to refill.

The high-pressure guage reads 850psi

Is this simply a sign to refill or what?

Then you don't need a refill. When it drops below 800 psi at 70 then you need a refill.
