That seems to be normal for that system. Trickling like a man with an enlarged prostate
So maybe this leads to my tip #2: When I took my tank out of the box, it rattled with all the junk in there. So I've blown it out with compressed air really well while shaking, etc and the rattling stopped. Now I have it sitting with a bunch PB Blaster blown in to halt any oxidation. When it comes time to mount it, I'll rinse with some of last year's premix.
