I am at work and unfortunately don't have time to read the entire thread. New too regulators and the frist page should have answered my question but I am slightly confused as again this is new to me. I bought a used regulator on Ebay and want to test it. I have nothing to connect to it yet. A co-worker of mine is a brewer and has a tank of CO2 that he is willing to test the regulator with but is not really familiar with the ins and outs of regulators either. His "just works". When we connect the regulator to the tank it constantly lets CO2 out the outlet side without it being capped. No matter if we tighten the regulator adjuster or not it keeps flowing. Is this normal? the regulator is an Airgas dual stage. Are we doing something wrong? Any tips would be apprecaited.
