hello, i've got a question about my taprite co2 regulator. when I open my co2 tank, co2 seems to be leaking out of the hole that is just to the bottom right of the adjustment screw in the attached picture. it didn't previously do this. any advice on what problem I have, or how it can be corrected? Thanks!

leaking gas is bad. I am not 100% sure but that could be a blow out screw, indicating the regulator is bad/unsafe. I would replace it ASAP if the screw will not tighten down.

The diaphragm in the regulator is leaking. That hole is a weep hole put there to keep the body of the regulator from building pressure. Hate to say it, but your regulator is bad and you need to get a new one ASAP.

You should be able to replace the diaphragm
