    No it cant be unblocked
    Its cause is often debated
    generaly excepted the cause is natural chemicals leeching from the rubber pipes
    you can go someways to prevent it by making sure your regulator is mounted higher than the bottles

    hi, take it you have a fixed bulkhead reg.
    1, it could be mounted too low ,needs to be above the bottle.
    2, they say its part of the hose leaching out.usually a black oilly muck.
    3.some change the hose and wash the reg in petrol to clean it
    4.buy a new hose and reg and try the bove keep this new reg just as a spare.
    5, google BES, they do very good pigtail hoses with fixed ends and can do a very good price on the reg.
