Ista I-548 3 in 1 Vertical CO2 diffuser Question

I'm not even really sure where I got this diffuser (you can see it in this youtube vid), but i hooked it up today in a 3 gallon soon to be planted pico tank and I'm not getting a fine mist of bubbles at all. I followed the instructions in the video but I'm just getting periodical large bubbles. I should mention, if I open the valve on the co2 tank a bit I do get a mist but it's accompanied by larger bubbles too.

Did I do it wrong. Is this thing a cheap plastic piece of crap? Should I grab a glass diffuser and if so, which one?

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

does the bubble come from the ceramic surface or the edge where it connected?
I would soak and brush off any clog on the disc in bleach... (worth a shoot)
