i just set up a paintball co2 tank recently, thought i had a leak so i took the regulator off and now the o ring looks stretched up... i dont have any extra o rings on me, do you need to replace the o ring everytime you take off the regulator??

edit - the brand new tank and o ring has only been running for 2-3 days so far... do i need to replace the o ring now? since i took off the regulator from the co2 tank?? didnt think the o ring would stretch that much after 2-3 days only

IME, they split. You will see the split pretty easy. It usually won't be a slow leak. I didn't have to replace every time the regulator was removed, but you need to watch it. Like I said, you will know when it leaks.
