Installing CO2 system

Is your CO2 system OK? any leakage?
Procedure to check on leakage:
1. Check regulator’s washer / o-ring condition. Is it any crack or damage?
2. Tighten the nuts to connect regulator and CO2 cylinder. Turn On the main valve and needle shall be pointing to 1000 kg/cm2. Do you hear any gas “psssss….” sound?
3. Turn off the main valve at CO2 cylinder. Leave them overnight. Second day, is reading still 1000?
4. Connect chek valve, bubble counter and diffuser. Turn on the regulator so diffuser make bubbles. Dip everything into a bucket of water (Do not put in Co2 cylinder and regulator). Does any connections has bubble coming out?

How to connect Co2 system:
Sorry temporary i using other people picture.
CO2 Cylinder >> Manual regulator >> check valve >> bubble counter >> check valve(optional) >> diffuser
