Regulator question

Post #1 by Haiden_Grimfreid » 1 year ago

I was messing with the pressure on one of my kegs yesterday and i decided to turn the pressure down on it, but when i did it seemed like the regulator was bleeding pressure off the co2 cylinder instead of the keg, so i stopped messing with it. Is there an easy fix for this? or should i get a new regulator. im pretty well positive that it was bleeding off the tank not the keg as i can hear the co2 tank releasing gas.

I know that with my regulator if i lower presssure on it, it does not lower the pressure in the keg, i have to release thjs pressure myself by pulling the safety pin. How to fix your problem, someone with more experience will need to wiegh in.

It's ok. As you lowered the pressure, the excess gas vented out the design hole.
