It will slow down the more you use it.In fact, it gets slower every time you use it.In my experience.
Hi Joe,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
Hi Joe,I follow what you say about pressurizing the small volume hose, but I'm finding it attempts to continue filling the reservoir of my PCP rapidly too. I am operating the valve knob very, very carefully as it seems to go from 'not open' to fast flow out of nowhere. I open it in the tiniest increments possible with it taking a half dozen tiny movements before it then flows fast. The standard valve on my scuba tank is much more controlled. Can you please post instructions to do the adjustment? Having them written would help if I have to refer tot them again, and believe it or not I have been contacted by 2 other people asking if I could share the instructions (they assumed I had called). Or even make it as a refer3nce on your site where the tanks are listed? Thanks
Posting to subscribe to this thread. I have the same problem as Joseph. Guppy goes from closed to torrential with almost nothing in between. I have an easier time with a standard SCBA valve. Been meaning to send it in for service, but if simple I'd handle at home.
Thanks Joe.I figured it was.So, do you have any tad-pole tanks anymore?Thanks
Great WhiteTiger SharkGuppyYou had one more a bit smaller.What was the name???Oh yeah. The Minnow..Do you still have some?

Remove the valve from the tank.Remove little nut, spring and needle/restrictor at bottom of threadsmount needle in drillusing fine sand-paper spin needle with drill, sanding cone of needle (Idea is to make the fine score/line in the needle even smaller)Re-assemble. Andy, when did you purchase this from us, and we'll confirm which version you have. Must've been a few years ago. Just contact us, no need to wait so long to let us know via the forum.
