The other tank, a quite old GEN1 Maxflo system, has a non-repairable leak out of it's on/off knob. So that entire system is now down-for-the-count.
It's always tough to play the blame game but i'm 100% confident both tanks were not leaking before I sent them off... so I have far less confidence in how much care they give in removing and refitting the regs.
If anything, be sure to remove the reg yourself before sending it off.
Thats unusual, I think I've had about 10 tanks done there, never a problem, I always remove my own reg though.
