Just bought a pressurized Co2 canister 5lb.

Regulator hooked up easy and works fine held same pressure for 2 days before trying to add to tank with bubble counter.

Added line to co2 tank directly to bubble counter and it works fine until i hook it up to my diffuser. The BPS starts at 3 and it only stays on for 5 seconds before turning to 0. No matter how high i turn the co2 there are no bubbles coming out. Can’t find a leak anywhere.

Any ideas?

Could be the bubble counter or the check valve. Try to submerged them in your tank.
