Hello, I'm currently in the process of setting up a paintball co2 system for my planted tank. I just connected my regulator to my tank and after adjusting working pressure, and plugging in the solenoid I began to open the needle valve. However, no matter how much I turn the needle valve no bubbles are coming out. My co2 tank is at about 800psi and a working pressure of 35 (both according to the regulator). I have no clue why it's not working. I'm using a GLA GRO PAINTBALL AQUARIUM CO2 REGULATOR.

I've increased the psi but it didn't change anything. A 20oz paintball tank is connected to the regulator.

no bubbles in the bubble counter appears to be an issue with the needle valve. Yes, it is plugged in, I wish the problem was that simple! I think the problem may require I get in touch with GLA directly. Thanks for the help!

I had a similar issue setting up my gla c02 system. I had the check backwards so the bubble stopped after a couple minutes. Once the check was corrected, everything has been fine.

What do you mean 'the check'? The check valve that sits below the bubble counter? How...what?

So do you have your Solenoid valve on?Do you here the Co2 coming out of the valve?
I have the same unit. Never had a problem but unless you have 110 volts opening the solenoid valve you will never get the gas to come out of the Co2 tank.
