PostPosted: Thu Jan 28, 2010 5:21 am    Post subject: my nipple leaks!!

on my dye tank, one of the nipples leaks massively after the nipple is disconnected from the gas line. when i take it apart, the oring is not reseting; infact, the oring is unseated on one side and the little cylinder thingy is prevented from being pushed up into place. i tried lubing it with some shocker grease, but no improvement.

any ideas or should i just replace my leaky nipple?

edit: here is a picture. it looks like the sudden influx of air going into the tank pushes the oring out of place?

I would not have greased it at all. Grease and oil are big "no-nos" for HPA tanks. If that grease or oil gets in the tank it could cause a big caboom. Shocker grease should be dow 33 which is silicone based but I still wouldn't risk it.

Just go to your shop and get a new one.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!...dont ever again put that nipple in a tank!

putting oil or grease onto a fill nipple actually turns your tank into a bomb(mike from techpb actually had a very serious show on this)

bottom line...get your tank inspected to make sure NO grease got into it and if thats fine then get a new fill nipple (cp nipples are great for the price) and you can just chuck that nipple out

Next stop for this tank is ninja reg swap anyways. 40 bucks for a hydro and a new reg? Great deal.

Do they give a time frame for my explosion? It did this with the last nipple, and that was the one I greased the piston on to no avail. I had this one at home, and I changed it out and it worked fine for a while. But last time I played...I didn't even mess with it when it started back up.

I don't think that it is a garunteed explosion but it is one of those things that can happen.

Oh and I agree, if you aren't around for a while we'll know why and post up a memorial.
