Well, I had co2 for a minute. Got the diffuser dialed in to a satisfying 1bps or so. Then I turned off the solenoid and heard an audible hiss. Gas was leaking out of the pressure relief port!

Hooo boy, unscrewing the paintball tank gave me a good scare! Liquid ice sprayed out for a split second and I thought for sure it was gonna hurt. Luckily I came out unscathed only needing some clean underwear.

The cylinder was the last 24 oz one they had today, and it was a refurb. They did give me a warranty so the wife is being kind enough to take it back tomorrow since the shop is right next to her office. It did look pretty while it was up and running though.

Odd thing is it wasnít leaking at first. I turned the solenoid on and off a few times...but after removing the cylinder, itís hissing from that stem in the center.

Any ideas or advice?
