I still prefer Paraplate BR5-2. They last 10 years or more, and I don't rebuild them because it seems like once they start to leak they won't hold a kit.Speaking of Regulators what regulator is everybody here recommend, I've been using the SMC 555 balanced regulator, and what's everybody thought on rebuilding a regulator versus just replacing the whole unit.
How do I figure the correct tip size?Replace the tip with a new one, and make sure it's the correct size.
You could have a failed check valve letting pressure go back through something. The weep one is easiest to diagnose because your other bays will be weeping when the bay with weak pressure is running.
If the pump clatters really loud with the trigger pulled but is quiet with it released, you have a restriction on the water line to the pump, often a failed check valve.
If you go so far as to check the valves in the pump, look inside for any debris and suck on them to be sure they seat completely.
