heres the pic of it running.

  I have no regulator in the line so my flame slowly weakens till I swap to a full bottle again I tried with a regulator but didn't get enough pressure can you give me an idea to fix this im adjusting the t-valve every 5 min it seams to keep the flame the same

Regulators are rated for the pressure they will deal with.  If you used a standard gas grill regulator it will only let WAY LESS pressure than you need through.  I suggest a 0-30 psi regulator.  What was the regulator you were using rated for?

(I've seen someone try to use a household gas system that was rated at 1.5" of water column; when what they needed was more like 20 FEET of water column! 14.7 psi being about 32 feet of water column...)
