Keep pushing a little bit at a time.
The signs will arrive before you blow anything up.
Then back down until the signs go back away.
Beware of developing loads in cold weather as they will get hotter as the weather warms up.
MUCH safer to develop loads in summer and use them in winter as you will just be losing some pressure/velocity...
