I had a tank filled this morning around 9:00, just when to put the regs on it and it is completely empty. Newer tank and never have had a problem with it before, called the company and they said stop back by, they would fill it again. What might be the problem?
Thanks

A leak in the tank, it was just setting all by itself?

You would hear a leaky tank. I always listen when I turn the valve on. Yesterday I put my latest on gas and heard hissing, and not a slow hissing, and immediately turned it off. It was the regulator threaded to the tank that was loose. Pretty simple, but there was no mistake there was a problem.

This is what I found out, went back the drive shop to get it re-filled. The employee put 5# of CO2 into my 2.5# tank; I just needed the little one topped off for the holiday to travel with. So they gave me back my money from the other day. Then I went to Praxair, to do an exchange, the shop manager was the one that was helping me. I told him the story and this is what he told me, if tanks get over filled as the cool down to room temp they will blow out the rings inside the overflow valve. So I did an exchange for it.
