I took my tank to the local shop to get the bottle resealed to the reg since it was leaking pretty bad.

BUT

they sort of fucked up, didnt call me when it was ready, and so i picked it up tonight when i was playing.
i wanted to pick it up right away so i could ask the tech what he uses to reseal the bottles with.

well? what is it? it will be a type of loctite, but not standard types of loctite, as they are only rated to 300psi.

Hello,

Yes it is usually a blue locite... USUALLY ... with these kind of things you definately should ask a pro so i would go back to your local pro shop and ask them before you end up messing stuff up.

Nick,

The loctight doesn't have to seal against even 300psi since the tank has an o-ring. The loctight is only there to stop it from spinning off (NOT SEALING). A lot of regs (like max flo and other direct mount) usually don't come with any loctight so you can easily take your reg off when you go to the airport. The only issue is when you have a "screw off tank" you end up unscrewing the tank off the reg instead of the reg off the gun which gets to be fun when it vents out the safety hole. Even if the loctight was sealing the safety hole is right next to the o-ring and the loctight wouldn't be able to seal with only like 2 threads to the saftey hole. So loctight away buddy, no worries, the o-ring is what holds the pressure!
