Default carbing soda in a keg

I bought a box of the syrup in a box and tryed mixing it with water like its supposed to be. But when I force carb it I cant get the carb level high enough. I carb it when the liquid is 40 deg F. and keep that as my serving temp to.

What pressure are you carbing at? and for how long?

40psi for 3 days then drop it down to 20psi for serving.

When you drop it down to 20psi, your soda will slowly lose carbonation. You may also be losing some right away if your lines are too short. A short line at that pressure blasts the soda right out of the hose and into the glass, causing a lot of foaming, cut down on foaming and you cut down on CO2 loss.
