Hi guys, I just got an aqua labs co2 regulator and when I attached it to a 20oz paintball tank it started releasing co2 through the pressure relief valve. I kept on playing with it to see if I did something wrong.
When fully closed the pressure on the gauge was all the way to the end. I decided to let it drain just to see if it would stop and eventually it did, but it seemed like lots of co2 came out. Now it seems to be operating properly, but I don't know how much co2 i have left.
The regulator is rated at 55psi output pressure.
Is it possible that the guy at the paintball store overfilled the tank by way too much and the regulator just couldn't handle the pressure?
I haven't hooked it up to my aquarium yet, I'll probably get to it this weekend. And I guess I'll see how long it will last me.
I already emailed the company, I'll see what they say.
This is the one I got. Aqua Labs || Advance Camozzi CO2 Speed Flow Controller Regulator MINI-SS with Soleniod - Regulator & Solenoids - CO2 Acessories
I regret not getting the dual gauge one, I was trying to get the smallest one. But they both pretty much cost the same.
