hi guys just a quick couple of questions. how long should a 2kg pressurised fe last on average? Mines seem to be averaging 6 weeks at 2bps for 12hrs a day is this normal? Also is it better to keep the co2 running 24/7? ive had problems with bba in the past thinking mite be fluctuating co2 perhaps? Any help would be much appreciated

I'd check your connections Andy. It should last longer than that at roughly 2bps for 12hrs a day. Try spraying it with some slightly soapy water (washing up liquid) around the joints. If theres a leak, it should bubble up.

Are you using CO2/pressure resistant air line?
