I had a full 5# bottle of CO2 sitting in my house next to my kegerator. All of a sudden the PRV went off and depressurized the tank in about 15 seconds. Sounded like a jet engine in the house. My question is what caused this? It was at room temperature and its been sitting there about 2 weeks. Has anyone had this happen? What are my chances to get this swapped for free since I swapped it a couple weeks ago?
I think you just got a tank with a bad PRV. I'd take it back and tell them what happened and show them a pic of the frosty tank. BTW, sweet floor...looks like acid stained. I did the same thing for my basement wetbar area.
