Leaking tanks

Question for store owners: Do you get mad/aggravated when you fill a tank and it leaks scaring the sh*t out of you? I'm about to get it filled, but I'm worried it might leak scaring/making the guy angry.

Just let the store employee know there might be a problem with the tank. That will give them an opportunity to fix the problem before they fill it.

Well I had it leaking at the field, I got it refilled then it was fine. I lubed it and everything and idk if it fixed it. Could something really bad happen if I reassembled it wrong?

Your tank probably just has a dirty rag, or a loosened reg. clean the internals of the reg and tighten up the reg before filling. Both have happened to me and it scares the crap out of me Everytime lol. It's probably nothing

If this is the case, you may just want to buy it some ice cream and leave the tv on the Lifetime channel for a few days.

I second this. Give it lots of space for a week or so and you'll survive it!

Stop lubing your freaking tanks!

You're all field owners, keep this kid in check! Don't, for the love of god, put oil on any part of your tank regulator. Take it to the field, hopefully they're educated enough to fix it.

You lube the reg, not the tank.
