24oz paintball tank vs. 5lb tank
I'm confused.... So I'm running a 130g tank thought 2 paintball tanks would be sufficient but I cranked the co2 to the proper levels of 30ppm and I burnt through one tank in a day.... So doing calculations.... 16oz is roughly 1lb... So a paintball tank is 2lb.... 2lb got burnt through in one day... Won't a 5lb tank only last 2 days??? Paintball tank was 800 psi.... Unless a 5lb tank is way more pressure then I don't understand and need some explanation TIA
