Default What does word bar mean on my CO2 Regulator?

Just wondering what the word Bar means on my Co2 Regulator. My regulator has PSI on the outer ring and Bar on the inner ring. I am using carbing stone right now which I probably won't be using in the future but was wondering if the word bar had anything to do with it? Just doesn't seen to be working like they say but I don't want to hurt anything by turning the pressure up with that stone attached, the instructions just said to turn it to just a couple PSI but the lowest my reg. reads is about 4-5 psi, and that doesn't seem to do anything anyways. I am new to kegging son any advice would be great.

Bar is just another unit for describing pressure. 1Bar = ~14.5PSI

bar is the metric (SI) unit for alcoholic drink serving establishments. 1 bar = 0.799 pub

It won't hurt anything to start it out at 4-5psi, and in fact 4 psi is a pretty common starting point when carbing with a stone. Just turn it up until the gauge registers the pressure, and then increase by 1-2 psi every hour until it's at the serving pressure. Just out of curiosity, why won't you be using the stone in the future?
