Tank Regulator

i think my argon tank has a leak but i have no extra regulator. what shld i do to stop the leak?

i left the argon last night with a reading of 1650psig. when i got back this am it said 1500psig. i've closed all butterfly and needle valves connected to it + the regulator valve connected to it (main valve + flow rate valve). still it leaked and now says 1400psig. i have no extra tank regulator at the moment. should i just remove the tank regulator? won't the tank leak anymore that way?

Argon is NOT poisonous, but make sure you have a little ventilation (to get enough oxygen).

The most likely leak point is at the regulator connection to the tank. The fitting nut takes a big wrench like 1-1/8" (I think). If you've got a wrench, you might try to tighten it to the max. You might even try to locate a big male to help tighten it. Maybe there is a little dirt at the fitting interface, so you could take it apart, clean it, and re-assemble.

It could be anywhere, so here's another trick. Mix a little dish detergent in clean water & put it in a squeeze bottle if you've got one (e.g. empty contact lens solution bottle). Then squirt or pour the soapy water on the joints you suspect are leaking. (Bring lots of paper towels.) The leak will make bubbly foam.
