greenleaf atomizer regulator v3 need nylon gasket?
 
Just as the title says, does the greenleaf regulators require a nylon gasket?

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

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

You might get a quicker response by contacting Orlando over at GLA.

Where is the CO2 escaping from?

It appears from the connection. But is it possible from the twist valve?

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.

The only time it appears the air is escaping is when I actually twist the valve which is why I still think its the connection. The air may be escaping at the top of the connection which is why it appears it is at the valve

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

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

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

There ia a brass inster that comes with the regulator in a plastic ziploc. Screw this into the C02 tank valve in the center, then put on the regulator

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
