    Posted: 12 February 2005 at 2:37pm
The Pin valve on one of my CO2 tanks is leaking after shooting with it and unsrewing it. Is it worth it to try to fix or should I just get a new one?

Thanks

Edit: I just remebered I also have an on/off switch I bought off ebay. Can I install this myself as it would fix the pin problem.

Leaks at the pin valve are usually caused by a faulty o-ring that the valve pin seats against, or perhaps ome trash that has become lodged between the o-ring and the pin. To check the leak thoroughly, the tank valve has to be removed and the o-ring removed and inspected.

If this is the case, don't do it yourself, bring it to a paintbal field where the people know what they're doing.

Take it to a qualified technician to be worked on. Air tanks should NEVER be repaired or modified from home unless you absolutely know what youre doing.
