    Hello,

    good old fashioned bottle regs for me too.

    rarely used to fail and if they did it simply meant loosening the hose clip, pulling off the old one from the hose and pushing on a new one.

    no messing about with spanners removing two hoses and a screwdriver to remove the reg from the wall.

    The bulkhead ones are great they block up without warning and have ten times as many places to leak full bottle pressure from as a bottle mounted reg and only cost over ten times the price :Doh: and they call that progress
