Complete Leak Check, CO2 pressurized system
Here's the first reading
Third and final reading:
Clearly there must be a leak on the second chamber of this reg. I used a 1/4" plug on the relief valve and outlet ports. There shouldn't be any decrease in pressure unless it is leaking from the LPG...
I redid all the connections the LPG and the two plugs making sure to do three turns of yellow teflon and tightening as much as I could keeping in mind not to overdo it with my mighty strength.
This is a very small and maybe insignificant leak but is it worth keeping the reg?
This is a Victor SR 453d meant to be used with CO2...I like the size of the reg and gauges but sadly it leaks.
Yes, it is a one stage reg but adding a good needle valve would have made this a nice rig.
