Does anyone have experience of using one of I have used mine about 5 times and now I can't get a full seal
The problem is the internal metal to metal connection between the two bits of the adaptor leaks

Has anyone had this problem and worked out a solution. If I need to get a new regulator for the refillable
CO2 has anyone used a brewers co2 regulator as they are a lot cheaper than the aquarium specific ones . I already have a solenoid
Thanks

Also make sure that the co2 bottle has had a few hours in the same room as the regulator, as change of temperature can cause the threads to expand/contract.

Dcurzon thanks- now that you have pointed it out the physics is obvious yet so easily overlooked. That’s very helpful and I have successfully used the PTFE tape. Thanks again
