You pretty clearly didnt read the entire post.... This is my 3rd tank change... and this GLA reg has a gasket built in.... Its the tank, which required me to buy a brass gasket that will allow me to fit my reg onto any tank in North America

msawdey unfortunately... its the tank... it has too deep of a seal groove. I had to order another small brass seal from GLA

msawdey response from GLA " Yes they do require a blue gasket. The gasket is a fitted gasket that sits inside the regulator."

Which is present on the connector of the regulator and it is still leaking.... ill update as i receive info

Its definitely escaping the connection which tells me that it may actually need a washer

Yes, a leak can occur anywhere.

I would double check with some soapy water (just apply it to all the joints) to pinpoint where the leak is coming from first.

msawdey That's what I thought. When attached the new tank though air is escaping. Not sure what to do

oldpunk78 Their atomic regulator? No. Their other regulators, yes.

greenleaf atomizer regulator v3 need nylon gasket?

Just as the title says, does the greenleaf regulators require a nylon gasket?
