I like to set mine at 12 psi and leave it for 1 week. After that it will stay carbonated, and I don't have to reconnect it until after I've served several pints.

Mine is at 40 degrees in the kegerator, at 12 psi. It's always at 12 psi- I have room for 5 kegs and that is my balanced pressure for my system.

I'm not sure what you are saying. You had it set at 12 and now it shows 10?
