Ah, I didn't know you were replacing existing units. In that case, it would be in everyone's best interest to try and find out all you can about the original units, especially what the fill pressure was. If they were filled to "standard" pressure and you over pressure them in an effort to make them last longer, it may overload the transformer. If that happens, all the transformers will have to be replaced with larger ones. Or, if they were originally over pressured it would be good to know by how much so you can duplicate the pressure so the transformer will be loaded correctly (assuming it was to begin with). Yes, I agree - not a good situation to be in for you.
