increasing psi with all-american pc?
    #4233891 - 05/29/05 06:05 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I just got an AA pc, and I'm having trouble reaching 15 psi (I'm getting to about 3-4 psi before it stabilizes). I filled it with about 1 1/2 inches of water, exhausted the vent port for about 2-3 minutes, and even after I turned the electric coil stove to max heat, it won't get above 4 psi. One reason this could be is steam is slowly billowing from the metal seal on one side, is this normal? Any ideas? I have a 921 model, and I gave it 25 minutes to heat after adding the pressure regulator weight.

i recently started tightening the nuts as tight as i could and i havent had a probem with leaking. Make sure your lid is on straight and that its not leaking from the seal. it shouldnt leak, not even a little bit. Is it new, if so it will need to get worn in a little before it seals perfectly. How big is the coil, electric sucks for pc'ing

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.
