[APD] Re: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 18, Issue 45

Yes, you need a washer and if the regulator connector isn't brass (ie JBJ) you will need gas tape for the threads...
I had to make a few of those %$^#! trips myself.....

Mine finally gave the up the ghost after 15yrs....I went a supplier of brass valves/fittings etc (for gases) they gave a few different sizes to try for free and they worked, Try the Yellow pages, you might find somewhere nearer...

To: <aquatic-plants at actwin_com>

I just exchanged the CO2 tank for my planted aquarium, and I am having a
hard time getting a good seal between tank and regulator. The old tank had
what looked like a black rubber or plastic washer that allowed the regulator
to seal tightly. The new tank doesn't have that. Do I need to buy some
sort of washer or o-ring?

It's a 1.5 hour round trip to the welding supply shop, so I'll be fairly
grumpy if I need to make another trip.
