Crossfire 68 45?

Anyone else have issues with a new crossfire 68/45 slowly leaking air?

how slowly are you talking about? Does it leak fast enough that its noticeable while playing? or do you just lose a few hundred psi in the span of a couple weeks?

Not noticeable during play but after filling it will loose a few hundred within a week maybe too. I suppose if it bothered me that much I'd submerge it in H2O or use degreaser(an automotive track when finding tire leaks).

Its perfectly normal for some tanks to lose a little pressure over time. Don't worry about it.

Remember the Ideal Gas Law?

PV=nRT

As temperature changes, so will Pressure. Tank temperature will affect your indicated pressure. When you first pressurize your tank, it'll be hot. As the tank temperature cools down, your gauge will settle down to less pressure.

You probably don't have a leak.
