Hi, the co2 seems to be coming out a bit slow. The left dial reads 65, but the right one only reads just under 1 bar. I've tried turning the big knob on the top of the bottle (500g aquarium one). It has Zu -> and <-Auf and if zu is on then I've got it turned all the way on. Help!

Also, I've got an old glass diffuser which used to be on my yeast co2 system. The bubbles only come out around the edges. Does this mean it got clogged when some yeast mix got into it and I need a new one? or is it because the pressure isn't high enough? I've got about 1 bubble per second showing in the bubble counter.

Arrgh- isn't it supposed to be easy???

If you are able, set the second guage to around 2bar if you can work out which way to turn it, but 1 bar would be fine if it cant.

Dont worry about the diffuser, the co2 never comes out of the whole disk, normally a very small part.
