Is this normal?
That isn't normal, and it could be a check valve installed backwards, or a check valve that takes too high a pressure to open it. I sounds like the pressure builds up in the bubble counter, then suddenly goes out in a big bubble, dropping the pressure again, so it repeats over and over. I would be strongly tempted to return that CO2 system and get a different type.
