    did you bring it in from the cold? silicone might be the culprit, especially if temperature is involved. If it settled to 130, and didn't climb more, I wouldn't be changing IP.

    Now after trying many times I would have say it starts at 120 and climbs to 130 after 1 hour, even after breathing and purging a few times and by change you may see 130. But seem steady at 118-120.

    I would use the cristolube and raise the IP to 130 in use it won’t ever get the chance to raise while breathing from it.

    How long ago did you overhaul this? Have you dove with it since? Sometimes it takes 3-4 hundred cycles to take a set.

    A mouth go and yes I haven’t dove it’s it yet, plan on going in pool Monday. You think that will do it?

    Check it out after you have breathed it for a while. It should settle down. If not check for leaks, well you can do that in the pool too.

    I think I have a leak... with the same setup and after turning on the tank pressurizing the lines and then shutting down the valve, my ip from 120 dropped to 115 after 35 min. Changed second stage with a different regulator same test after 35 min an ip of 122 help at 122.

    Your thought?

    thanks,

    kk

    If you can repeat it several times and get the same results I'd be dunking your second stages in water looking for a leak.
