n2 Leak

Hey all,
This probably isn't a tough question, sorry. I searched around with little results...

1) What did I do? How do I fix?
n2 tank leak. - YouTube


I plugged the tank into my marker and it just started pissing air. I thought it was the marker, so I unplugged said tank. It was the tank. So, I plugged it into my other marker and it did it's job, I was able to at least fire some paint through it before I just let it run itself out. There is no obvious physical damage to tank, maybe something stupid inside that I don't know about...
Tank just returned from hydro a fortnight ago.

Thanks.

Unless you have experience with regs and such, I'd just take it to your shop.

This is my plan.

I'm just trying to figure out what the issue is. If they'll just do something real quick, or if it's going to turn into a hassle.

Thanks.

If your tank isn't leaking when not screwed into your ASA, try dropping an o-ring into it before screwing in your tank. Some ASA's don't work well with all regs.

Probably a pin valve leak. Meaning that once the pin is depressed, it does not seal right up like it should. Could be as simple as needing a new o-ring, or maybe actual upper bonnet damage. It is a Pure Energy reg, so it will either be made by PSI (Ninja), or the Chinese copy, which is almost identical.

Oh, it is. It leaks outside of the asa. It's when it's plugged in that it's better-ish.

just bring it to the shop. not worth literally killing yourself for a leak.

Like what has been said above, it probably is an o-ring or seat then. It should be fixable.

I'm not a huge fan of those regs. Might be cheaper (or near the same price) to just throw that reg away and have them install a new ninja reg.

that's what i did when mine came back from hydro leaking. $28 to fix it, $35ish to buy a ninja tank reg with installation fee included, no brainer there.
