Hey guys, so I just replaced an O ring in my regulator, and I did some research on whether a CO2 leak out of the regulator is a common problem, turns out it is. I was looking around and people said to upgrade and get a better regulator? Why would I need a better regulator.. what's different between the stock one and a different one? And if I were to get another regulator, what should I get?

it happens because you're using co2, and the regulator wasn't built for co2. Liquid co2 gets into the lines, causes a pressure spike, and blows the orings.

There's a few options:
1) have and anti-siphon tank installed in your tank, this will pretty much fix any problems you have with drawing liquid co2, assuming you have it installed properly
2) buy an angled ASA, so the top of your tank is higer than the bottom.
3) buy an air through grip, or expansion chamber and replace your regulator with it.
4) you can buy a palmers stabalizer. It's a regulator meant to work with co2, but also quite expensive
