Water got in my clippard solenoid valve, and it no longer completely stops the flow of gas when unplugged. At about 20 PSI working pressure, it is almost completely sealed, but any higher than that and a lot more gas goes through.

It was worse, but I blasted CO2 through it and it improved a bit.

If I blast CO2 at a much higher working pressure (50 PSI or so) through it, is that likely to help? What is the max pressure the clippard solenoid is supposed to be able to handle?


If I do need a new one, should I just get another clippard or are there others that are cheap/similar quality?

Hmmm interesting question. I have to wonder though.... by blasting CO2 through it wouldn't it just freeze any water that's in there? Once the pressure is reduced then a thaw might happen.

Sorry I couldn't more helpful. Looking forward to other responders to this.
