OK, I just got a 25# propylene tank for my hot head. I have a connector hose from a glass supply company for this purpose that is only about 5 ft. long. I have taken your warnings and advice here to heart and will not be putting it in my basement, as I had planed.
My questions are, does the cold temps (0-10) have any effects on its functioning? Second, can my cylinder (it is a torpedo shape) be used on its side? I think this is the only way my hose will fit. If not where can I get a longer hose?
