View Full Version : How can I tell if my Co2 bottle is any good?

Okay I just received my new regulator yesterday. I also filled my CO2 bottle up yesterday. Today I am almost empty. I put the reg on tightly and the connection has a rubber o ring. Where could my leak be coming from? My presure was at around 12. What could the problem be?

try filling up a bucket or ur bathtub and putting it in there and u should be able to see where the leak is coming from

99% of the time Co2 loss that quick was due to a leak. Most likely from where the reg affixes to the tank. There is supposed to be a nylon, 1 time use only, crush washer that sits in there, not rubber.

After you get it refilled and hooked back up, squirt a liberal amount of soapy water all over the connections and look for any bubbles coming from the joints to ensure there are no leaks.

Good Luck!
