Weird leak issue

I have had a slow leak lately on my empire 68/45. To cheak where the leak was, i dipped the reg in water. I did that and bubbles came out of where the reg meets the actual bottle, all the way around. When I took it out, I could hear it leaking as I couldn't before. The leak would die down after a minute, but it would start when I dipped it back in the water. It was strange as it only would leak there when it was in the water. Does anyone know why this happened?

Don't know if you're regulator is loctited down or broken free but once it reaches empty I would take it off and clean the neck of the bottle (and make sure the bottle is cleared out) and wipe down the regulator threads

The reg is either not seated fully or the o-ring between the reg/cylinder may be damaged.

If you dont know how to properly fix the issue I would send it back to the manufactuer. That could be a constly mistake if not fixed correctly.
