Default Selbies bass drone reed

Pipes are Hendersonís reeds are selbies. I am losing air out the bass drone. Iíve have adjusted the tongue to my desired threshold and when I blow the pipes up to shut the reeds off my bass drone can only hold for 10 seconds. Is there anything else I can do to make my bass drone hold longer.... Iím using too much energy keeping bag full?
