New co2 atomizer not working. Help!

So I just got a co2 setup on my 6 gallon tank. I have an fzone regulator with paintball tank set up and a inline co2 atomizer. I have the psi at 40 and doing 1 bubble per second but nothing happens. No co2 coming out of the outlet pipe. It only works when I crank the bubbles per second to more than 1 bubble, that’s the only way it starts to flow out. I read that the co2 atomizer requires a 30-40 psi to work, but now I don’t want to go over that or it will probably crack or leak? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here is the regulator and co2 atomizer I’m using.

It may just be dissolving into the water at 1 BPS. Is the pH dropping from that? How about at 2-3 BPS? The drop in pH will tell you if it's working or not better than anything else.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
