View Full Version : Leaking out of the hose nut?

07-19-2007, 04:08 PM
It's been about a week since I got my Pilot, and I'm getting angry. Co2 is leaking out of the the part of the hose going from the bottle into the expansion chamber. The big lug nut at the top of the hose is turning white, and sticks to my hand if I touch it (frostbite anyone?), so I know it's from there. How can I resolve it? There's also a hissing sound, and you can visibly see the co2 coming out. Just tighten it with a wrench?

Tightening it with the wrench should fix it. You might even want to take it off, wrap some teflon tape around the threads, then put it back in.

Do exactly what he ^ said. Make sure that you wrap the teflon tape 2-3 times around the threads and that none gets into the hole.
