CO2 tank backfilled with water EOTD
Hey all! I got myself a nice little co2 tank and forgot to put in the check valve. I use a dual gauge regulator, and an atomic diffuser. Somehow, water back fed into my regulator and tank. The regulator is easy enough to clear- just hook it up to a new tank and let the pressure flush out the water. The tank on the other hand- much more difficult- is there any saving it?
It's filled about 20-25% with water. I have hooked up a fitting to open the pressure valve and turned the tank upside down in an attempt to slowly drain out the water. However, it's taking forever. I was hoping there might be a quicker way.
