Hi it's possible but all that you will achieve is to balance or equalise the pressure between the two tanks. Confusingly you will increase the pressure of the lowest pressure tank by 50% of the difference between the higher pressure tanks starting pressure and the lower pressured tanks pressure. I'm sure that's as clear as mud
When I was 5 I wanted to be like George Best
At 10 I wanted to be Nigel Mansell
At 40 I wanted to be like Tiger Woods
At 50 I want to be like Gilly
