Well, for those of you who are still afraid of installing a regulator, here are some practical tips that can be done.
1. At the time of purchase make sure the weight matches
When buying gas, make sure the weight is in accordance with the way it is weighed. Avoid using feelings or guessing. But if you are sure, it does not matter if you want to immediately carry the gas. Don’t feel like you just bought it, how come the gas runs out quickly.
2. Make Sure There Is Rubber Inside The Valve
The rubber in the valve is generally red. If it’s not there, you can ask at the place of purchase of gas. With a record of the place of purchase of a gas station, gas station, or official outlet. If it’s not there, you can also buy it in the supermarket.
3. Make sure the regulator and hose are in good condition
Regulators and hoses are said to be suitable for use within a period of about 1-2 years. If more than that is still being used because it is still “usable”, please do not blame the gas cylinder if there is a problem. Like, the gas line is jammed, the key no longer bites, the needle is stuck, and so on. Check the condition of the hose by slightly bending it, making sure there is no whining or cracking in the hose.
