Keep an eye out in the free section of craigslist, or check out some garage sales. You will find a filter for little to no money in due time. That would go along with your "no budget" theme.

I think it was the regulator, but cannot be 100% sure since I was somewhat in panic mode. I shut the tank valve immediately when I saw this.
