I have a 20oz CO2 tank with an on/off switch. Had it filled once, no problems...went to have it filled 2nd time, and the guy comes back to me and the tank has a small hiss and the dude said that those on/off valves wear out easily. I can see that after some excessive use, but after only 1 complete fill and the emptied??

Im just wondering if anyone else has had this problem before? Granted, Im not TOO concerned with it due to the recent purchase of an HPA tank, but I'd like to have the CO2 (as a backup for scenarios/play around the house, etc due to I can get it filled a block from my house and the HPA only at my field - 45mins away).

Thanks!

Is it a Smart Parts On/Off tank? On/Off tanks like pin valves should really never have a problem in their 5 year lifetime. Is it leaking out the side (where the burst disk is) or out the top?

I had my On/Off tank made by Palmer's and haven't had a problem in the 4 years it has been in use.

If it has air coming out of top- possiblilty you may need a new o-ring in the valve. Or there is dirt in the valve. It will be one or the other. If, it is not the oring or dirt-take it back to where you bought it and have them fix it.

I have had brand new tanks leak. There's seals in there. Brand new ones that leaked: PMI, Draxxus, Brass Eagle, and some other one.


Sometimes if you chill it too much it can freeze and leak.

Well this is ironic...because my 9oz tank just started leaking too...I think it has something to do with my gas line, but I'm not sure...

I take it that the 9oz is in your Marker's ASA, if so...the cause of that leak is the Tank's O-ring, unscrew the Tank from the ASA, is the Tank still leaking. if so...then the Pin Valve inside needs to replaced or get a New Tank.

As for the On/Off Valve for a Co2 Tank, theyre Pinless and to confirm that, look on top of the valve, do you see a Pin slightly Stick Out?

And like I said in my previous post, I have a SP on/off Valve on a 20oz tank and it clearly shows that there is no Pin Valve inside.
