Question Co2 Leak

Im sort of new to the fourms but me and some friends are haveing a similer problem with our co2 tanks.. At the top of the valve on the tank(sort of like the tire valve thingy) we have been haveing co2 leak out of them when we take our tanks off our markers normally we can get them to stop. Any ways one of my friends got his tank filled up a couple of days ago then went to hook it up to his new piolt he just got yesterday and all of his co2 had leaked out over like a days period.. i was wondering if any one knew of what causes the leaks and if there was a way to fix it..other than just leaving the tank attatched to the marker....sorry about the messed up thread in the other channel, i wasnt sure what i was doing

Default Re: Co2 Leak

Does the tank only leak when its not screwed in to the ASA? I had the same problem with my CO2 tank. Sometimes, the spring in the tank that holds the valve in place gets off alignment and lets air leak out very slowly. Mine was leaking slowly, but you could hear it coming out. To fix this, just screw the tank into the ASA and that should realign the spring. If this does not work, then you might need a new tank because that is all that I can think of.

How old is your tank?

Here is good tank for cheap. Its a new PMI Pure Energy.

Try depressing the pin when the tank is empty and putting 3-4 drops into the valve. It sounds like it isnt seating right, and the oil will help to solve that issue.

sounds like the pin's valve seal. Also...don't keep a full co2 tank in warmth...like 80*F or higher...the gas inside the tank expands and wants to evacuate the bottle.

Do what ^^ said and take the empty bottle, depress the pin a bit and add a drop of paintball oil...let it run in and past the pin...then let it up again.
