 Hi  friends  
 My  co2  valve  has  developed  a  leak.  It  is  a  wheel  type  valve.  Any  suggestions  where  I  can  buy  a  new  valve  in  Bangalore.  Any  pointers  is  greatly  appreciated.  Also  what  could  be  the  approximate  cost.
 
 Best  regards
 Abhijith

 can  you  post  a  picture  about  where  it  is  leaking?if  it  is  the  open  and  close  valve  of  the  cylinder  then  you  need  to  open  it  fully.  this  will  lock  the  valve  and  stop  the  leak.  a  half  open  valve  usually  leaks

 The  gas  is  leaking  from  the  valve  even  when  it  is  fully  closed.  Faced  this  issue  when  i  got  the  cylinder  refilled  this  time.

 Probably  something  got  stuck  in  the  valve  during  refill,  you  can  take  it  back  to  the  refiller  and  check  it.  
 Ask  the  guy  who  refilled  the  tank  to  do  the  following,  its  too  dangerous  to  be  done  at  home  by  you.  ***DO  NOT  DO  IT  YOURSELF***
 You  can  open  the  valve  fully  for  a  few  seconds  and  close  it.  This  should  blow  out  any  object  stuck  inside.  This  is  rather  dangerous  to  do,  extremely  noisy  as  well.
