Default Gang valve after needle valve?

Would it be ok to use an airline gang valve after the needle valve on my co2
regulator? I want to split the line but dont need perfect control on either
post needle valve.

T.I.A.

yes, from your CO2 regulator to the gang valve, then to each tank...

If you can, test your gang valve to leaks, I used an air pump and submerged
the gang valve to find a leaky valve once, dabbed on some silicone, not
sealant, and it was tight....

It'll leak like a sieve....CO2 will even find its way through most airline
tubing - std airline gang valves will be a no hoper.

I've been using those metal airline gangvalves for over a year and
soft silicone airline tubing. Everything is still holding up and
nothing is leaking. I may be loosing a couple bubble per month to CO2
working it's way through the materials but it's no big loss in my
opinion. Best thing is to try it and judge for yourself.

Good luck
