maybe you have a broken O-ring? Thats the most probable reason for the leak.

Just go to your local store and have them look at the reg. It should just be a weak/old burst disk that needs replacing.

the seal on the burst disk might have failed

take it to a scuba shop or paintball shop they will fix it right unless you can find the burt disks anywhere.

Burst disk burst... That's what they do, ya know. ;) Local paintball shop or even Big5 or SportsMart carry them. Make sure to get a direct replacement, there are different kinds of them. 1800WP = 3k, 1200psi, 5kpsi, 7.5kpsi.... there's a bunch of them. Just match the number on the disk that's leaking to the one in the store.
