Hey guys I just got the atomic paintball regulator with solenoid by GLA. I also picked up a 20oz paintball cylinder. This is my first time using pressurized co2 so I need some help. Do I need some type of sealent like thread tape, permaseal, nylon, etc? Does the needle valve need to be closed?
I don't have the instructions with me (did you not get any with the purchase?), but as far as I recall, there's no sealant or tape that you need to add. I have been using this thing for over 6 months without any teflon tank or anything.
The needle valve should probably be closed when you initially hook up the regulator. However, it probably doesn't matter.
Where did you get it from?GLA are out of stock of most of their regulators.
I ordered it a week ago but I checked their website today and now they are out of stock. I bought their pps pro ferts, atomic diffuser, bubble counter, and drop checker I cant wait till it gets here. Also I emailed GLA about instructions for the V2 regulator and they responded within 15 mins with detailed step by step. I would send them a message on when they will be in stock again but trust me they are well worth the price!
