    Howdy folks...

    I'll probably get strung up for asking, but...

    What would happen if you joined in a Tee the output of two identical LPG regulators (30mbar) so as to get a better flow rate with less bottle freezing?

    I know that you're supposed to join the bottle outputs together before the regulator, but what issues would you face if you join 2 regulator outputs together? Will they no longer regulate? Safety issues?

    Thanks in advance...

    What happens when one bottle runs out?

    Indeed how does a bottle top regulator respond to back pressure?

    I'm thinking that the bottle whose regulator is giving slightly lower pressure would lock up so in effect you would only ever be served by one regulator.
