Have you ever gone to a paintball field, and your tank ran out of air in the middle of the game? Did you have to end your day early because you couldn’t refill your tank? Today, I’m going to show you how to easily refill your tank at home with an air compressor.
This process is simple and only takes a few minutes! So, whether you’re a beginner or experienced paintball fighter, keep reading for more information.
How to Fill Your Paintball Tank with an Air Compressor at Home?
Here are the things you will need for this process:
- An air compressor with a tank
- A paintball CO2 tank (duh.)
First, let’s go over what an air compressor actually is. This device compresses the air so that it may be used in other applications. One of these applications is refilling a paintball tank.
An air compressor has two different types of valves. One, being a Schrader Valve, and the other being a ¼ turn ball valve. These valves are identified by their size and shape. The Schrader Valve is identified by its large round structure while the ball valve is recognized by its unique shape.
So, now that you know what an air compressor is and how it works, let’s get the ball rolling. First, all you have to do is connect the paintball CO2 tank to your Schrader Valve (the one that looks like a tire).
Once you’ve connected the CO2 tank to the pump using both valves correctly, turn on your compressor. You will have to wait a few seconds until the compressor is completely filled with air.
When you hear some of the air leaving the tank, that means it’s full and ready for some paintball action!
All you have to do now is disconnect your CO2 tank from the Schrader Valve, then put your finger over it before pulling it off. This is to keep any air from coming out.
If you want, you can actually put an attachment on your Schrader Valve so that it’s easier to detach from your CO2 tank. Just make sure they connect easily before putting the whole thing together!
So, there you have it! You’ve successfully refilled a paintball tank with an air compressor! If this process was easy, then you know it’s just as easy to refill your paintball CO2 tank at home.
Now that you’ve got the tools and knowledge on how to get started, go out and get some all-day paintball action!
