  • Repeat the items above​​

After 10 Cases of Paint (1 Month):
After 20 Cases of Paint (2 Months):
  • Repeat the items above

  • ASA/Regulator:

    • Use the steps below or check out the video for details on maintaining your regulator. O-ring sizes are included if needed

    • Start by unscrewing the adjustable knob/cap (#62 on the diagram) on the front of the regulator and then remove the disc and reg spring and set them aside

    • Next, using a 3/32 hex wrench, you'll want to remove the screw for the on/off lever (#82 on the diagram) at the bottom of the ASA

    • Once removed, you should be able to pull out the wedge pin (#80 on the diagram)

    • Using a half inch or 13mm socket, you'll want to remove the regulator nut (#76 on the diagram), located on the inside of the ASA where the tank connects. Note this should only be hand tight when reinstalled

    • Using a toothpick or small metal rod of some sort, insert it where the wedge pin was removed and push out the regulator seal pin (#74 on the diagram)

    • With the Reg pin removed, grab a 3mm hex key tool and unscrew (counter-clockwise) the silver screw/pin inside the reg. This will allow you to remove the regulator piston and 2nd spring. If needed, a toothpick can be used to push out the piston from the side where you removed the screw

    • Wipe down the various parts of the regulator, inspect the o-rings for damage and replace if needed (sizes included below if needed). Re-lube with Dow33

    • Reassemble your regulator and test fire it a few times to confirm there are no leaks
