[APD] Re: CO2 tank question
OK, so I got my JBJ regulator and am about to go out and buy the tank.
When I connect the tank to the regulator, am I supposed to use any kind of
teflon threading or something? Or do I just screw the regulator on. I
understand you should use a wrench to make sure it's a tight fit.
PLMK, I'm a pressurized newbie here converting from DIY. THanks in advance.
You should normally not use teflon pipe tape on gas fittings (the same goes
for natural gas lines if you ever work on those). There is a yellow teflon
tape for gas lines that you could use, but it probably isn't necassary. For
gas lines you normally use a pipe thread compound that is goo-in-a-can.
For the regulator-to-tank fitting you probably won't need anything. Just
tighten it up, then check for leaks with some soapy water. You'll need a
wrench to get it on tight.
