geo2 leak through sl3 issue

Evening gents,

When I air up my geo2 recently the small hole located on the grip of the reg seems to be purging air and leaking. When I air it up it leaks more at first and then after 10 seconds or so decreases to nothing.

Is this sign of an oring going bad or is my reg just settling after being charged with air? Any one else have this problem?

Okay, first things first: ensure that your marker is registered for Warranty by signing up here: https://warranty.planeteclipse.com/site/signin

Having done this, please then contact your local Eclipse Service Centre for assistance via: http://www.planeteclipse.com/site/service_centres

Typically a leak from the vent hole of an SL3 regulator will either be linked to the Inline Regulator Piston o-ring or the 008 NBR 70 inside the Inline Regulator Adjuster top section. In an extreme case you may require the top half of the adjuster to be replaced - something that can be done under warranty PROVIDING you have registered your marker.

Thanks,

Nicky T

I had this problem with my Ego 11. I just let it stay like that and had no problems and it sealed up after lubing it.

Thank you Nicky for your response. Ended up taking the reg apart tonight. Removed the part from the bottom of the reg by screwing in te reg adjustment screw clockwise and popping it out. Lubed it up with some eclipse grease and it's all good!

I'm having the same issue.

I've replaced the orings on my piston and the regulator adjuster assembly with oring monkey orings. Still hissing slightly.

It's a Geo 2

Any ideas?

You replaced the 008 inside the reg adjuster top?

Also, is your adjuster nickel or brass?

Tried that and no luck. My adjuster is bottom half bronze and top half nickel.

So every o ring in the reg has been changed and it still leaks out of the hole?

Change that 008 once more, put some lube on the bottom stem of the piston and shove it in there to lube it.

I had constant problem with my reg, did all kinds a things according to Bates, and then it all just went away after changing an o ring that seemed perfectly fine that I had already changed.

Call Mr.Bates at PE and he WILL NOT sleep until your gun is working At least it will seem like he's that concerned.

Hmmm, my reg started leaking/purging as I shot streams in an event today. It was leaking out of the vent hole. Changed the piston o-ring which maybe fixed it for a game, that 008 is fine too so idk. I have a new adjuster top also. Who knows!?

Change the 008...mine looked fine too...you may need to add a touch more grease as well.

The gun is a tank, o-rings are not.
