Reg Hose to Second Stage Shut Off Valves
Reg Hose to Second Stage Shut Off Valves This is the area you will find the standard shut off valves. This style hooks on the one side to your regulator hose and on the other side to your second stage. Safety Note: Use a Overpressure Relief on the First Stage One thing to always consider with inline shut offs is there is now no pressure relief on you’re your regulator. If you regulator has a high pressure seat creep you will still high build pressure in your hose. This pressure would normally be vented via your second stage. The problem now is that we have added an on/off valve there is no way for the pressure to escape. This leads to either a ruptured hose, a blown off shut off and a guaranteed need to change your underwear.
