I had my nice new Great White tank filled the other day for the first time. I decided to compare the accuracy of the extra gauge you installed that always shows remaining check tank pressure to the larger gauge. I hooked my fill hose up and put my deadhead in the other end and sure enugh they were exactly the same. That little gauge is nice!
Anyway, when I slowly cracked the tank valve open I noticed the pressure jumped up pretty fast. I was expecting it to be slow because this is some kind of slow flow valve, right? Can you help me understand what I should expect from this SLO-FLO valve?
Everything on the tank seems really nice
Thanks for liking our tanks so mucy. I always appreciate making someone happy (don't we all?)
When you ope the valve the pressure is initially pressurizing only the very small volume of air in the hose and the pressure jumps quickly. If you watch and listen closely, you might hear a click, as the one-way check valve in your PCPC airgun clicks open. At that point, now the much larger volume of the Rifle is being filled, and the need will move more slowly.
We try to adjust the speed of the Slo-Flo to make everyone happy. But, like the thermostat, some like it where it is, some what it more, some want it less hot. Same with the speed of the slo-flo- Fortunately adjusting the speed of the slow flow is easy. Either you can do it, or I can.

I prefer to answer your question on the phone, specifically because I don't have time to monitor forums on 24-7 basis. If I start answering questions here, it will either
A) become one more place that I must constantly monitor (in addition to 100's of emails, texts, calls, wak-ins, etc.) or
B) Accidentally go unnoticed and upset people.Our goal is to answer questions immediately, so please call 714-907-0067 between 8AM-4:30PM PACIFIC and well take IMMEDIATE care of you.
I can either walk you through how to slow down the valve, or I can do it at no charge.
