Preasure gauge moving

Hi all,

When my reg is hooked up & running the preasure gauge on it is not still. It moves very slightly up & down. Between 1.6 - 1.8 bar.

I use a wave co2 reg. is this normal?

I am beginning to think my co2 supply is not stable & could be fluctuating - is this an indication of this?

Thanks

I had this when I had a slight leak in the bubble counter. Check all the joints with washing up liquid. Hopefully that will solve it.

does it move with the bubbles?? if so this is normal. It will jump as the bubbles are released.

It's just moving constantly up & down...
I inject co2 straight into the filter & can't find any leaks.

Can injecting into the canister be unstable due to co2 bubbles building up inside?

Just to check - does the preasure gauge fluctuating mean that the co2 flow is unstable?
