    Hi
    I have one of those Azoo CO2 Regulators. It has a leak where the big nut fits on the cylinder. I think perhaps the plastic washer might need to be replaced, or perhaps the entire nut. How, where? Any DIY guru's...please help!
    Regards
    Lauré

    Permaseal, ftw. ;)

    Actually, these need to be replaced every time the regulator is unscrewed. You will never get the same airtight seal if re-used.
