 Hey  my  2kg  only  lasts  about  a  month  month  and  a  half  max  at  3-4  bps  for  7-8  hrs  a  day  :O
 
 I  have  checked  for  leaks  between  the  cylinder  and  reg,  reg  and  solenoid  and  solenoid  and  needle  vale.  I  have  gotten  rid  of  all  the  leaks  except  a  very  tiny  one  betw  the  solenoid  and  reg.  I  have  tried  to  reduce  the  CO2  loss  by  opening  and  shutting  the  main  cylinder  valve  only  when  it  is  in  use.  Still  the  cylinder  doesnt  last  very  long
 
 I  suspect  its  a  problem  with  my  regulator  which  is  an  Eagle  regulator.  Any  suggestions  on  what  it  could  be  ?
 
 Should  I  replace  the  reg  ?  
 
 Where  can  I  get  a  new  reg  (cost  effective  one)  in  Mumbai  ?
 
 Are  Yamato  regs  available  here  and  if  so  where  ?

 This  would  mean  that  your  solenoid  is  not  fitting  on  the  output  of  regulator  properly,  there  should  not  be  any  leak.
 Try  to  use  teflon  tape  on  the  threads  it  helps  sometimes.
 If  there  is  a  leak  the  cylinder  will  not  last  long.
 A  2  kg  clyinder  at  3-4  bps  should  run  for  2  months  at  least.
