Default Primary to secondary regulator pressure

If I've got a primary regulator linked to a 4 way secondary, what pressure do I set the primary at?

i have mine at 50.

i've heard a bunch of people on here keep theirs at 30, so they can split the line from their primary to seal up kegs and force carb and such

I think you should probably have it set for whatever you use it for. They adjustable so changing the pressure should be a problem.

I use 1 Reg to pressure my kegs in the fridge and I use the 2nd to seal/test empty kegs or force carb. I change the pressure as I see fit.

Unless you plan on using the primary pressure for something else, it only has to be higher than the highest secondary output.

I use 35 psi, so I can carbonate soda water directly.

Are we talking about a bank of 2 regs or 2 regulators in series?
