i work on these regs everyday at my shop , and dow 33 works best. you really dont want to swell the orings in the reg , especially if its a high output reg , because it leads to restricted flow and faster wear and tear on the piston oring. therefore , use dow 33. cp has the highest quality machining and very tight tollerances. and as to periodical maintenance , i rebuild my reg once every year. you dont have to , but i do. i recommend maintaining any reg atleast every 6 months. cp regs will last longer than you will own it. they are absolutely the best regs on the market , and are rock solid reliable and constant. i wont play without it
so in a quik summary
:use dow 33
:perform maintenance and inspection every 6 months
:when i say maintenance , i mean inspect interals for damage , clean internals with microfiber , relube seals, *and inspect safety
vent hole to makesure no debri such as loc-tite or built up grease are clogging it*.
:always keep manual with you anywere you go
:stay away from dow 55. its ok to use , but dow 33 wont swell orings and performs better

also , when re-installing your reg back onto the tank , i recommend putting lil amount of lock tite a few threads below the middle of the threaded section. that way when you screw the reg back on , the lock-tite is not pushed up toward the safety vent hole , nor is it near the end of the threads to so were it can potentially fall into your tank , and be flowed through the reg via air pressure.
and make sure to re-install reg very tight , and at the end torque with atleast 25 ibs of torque.
