hi all

i have found a hole in the co2 line i got with my kit
but cant buy any co2 line here in lfs in ireland

could i use regular line for a week or so
until i get an order from AE

i have a soft line and the regular harder silicone one
which would be better to use?

regards

Yes you can with no problems. Depending on your setup normal silicone tubing does leak a bit of CO2 gas depending on the pressure inside the tubing. Using a ladder diffuser will mean tiny amounts of CO2 escaping as the back pressure is low whereas using a ceramic diffuser will let some more CO2 escape as the pressure is higher.

Either tubing one will be ok.
