Once you get the leaks sealed do u open the main valve al open or just crack it?
I can't get the leaks in mine to stop but wanted to ask about standard operating procedure.
A photo illustration of where it's leaking would be great. I examined this setup hundreds of times and possible know almost all aspect of it. I can definitely help you out, considering that you took your time in setting it up carefully the right way tightening down parts and using enough Teflon Tape.
If it leaks at the Needle Valve's left threads that goes into the ASA On/off Valve 1/8'' opening, your not using enough Teflon Tape or it's not wrench down tight enough.
If it leaks on the right side of the 1/4'' Needle Valve, there are multiple causes of this. Check the followings.
1. Not enough Teflon Tape around that 1/4'' Thread of the Needle Valve
2. Wrong size co2 tubing
3. Compression Ring have been damaged when not tightening it down right
4. The Compression Ring Nut, isn't wrench down tight enough
Let me know how it goes.
Do lowes and home depot sell varying thickness of vinyl tubing? I heated mine up but I could not get the nut on it to screw it onto my needle valve. Did I get some that was to thick?
Lowes and Homedepot sells different size tubings. Gas, Chemical and Liquid rated.
The correct co2 tubing you want is the following..
Co2 Tubing (Part Number SVEB10 sold at Homedepot 10 feet is $2.14) It's Watts Brand.
If I remember correctly, it's should be the smallest size tubing that Lowes/Homedepot sells at the Plumbing departments below all the Brass and Copper fittings. The SVEB10, 10 meants 10 feet. If it says SVEB20, it will still work, the 20 is referencing the number of feet.
