Are all solenoids designed to screw directly into regulators or are some in line only
I have a clippard solenoid, old style maybe 7-10 years old still running well, however some advice from people tell me I need to screw my solenoid directly into my regulator. Green leaf says that will fix my problem of (blowing out my water in the bubble counter). I have tried everything , even adding extra check valves between the bubble counter & solenoid with zero success!
I decided to take the system down today & go down to Lowes & get the parts I need. They do NOT have the parts I need. So I am going to call the gas company where I bought my tank from to see if they have the nipples & fittings that I can attach my solenoid directly to the regulator.
My question is this: Since I am running my solenoid inline , are there INLINE ONLY solenoids that can only run inline. It has a nipple fitting / barb fitting for the tube & what looks like a compression fitting at each end. But there is only 3 threads on each side where the little compression fittings are! Is that enough to screw female ends into with more than 30 PSI??? Green leaf says it will fix my problem but to me putting the solenoid before or after the needle valve would create the same pressure once the solenoid opens up!!! Help, need advice, a new regulator & solenoid is not happening for this rig ,but I like running Green Leaf. Thanks
