Default Leaky Tap

Last night one of of my taps leaked out the all over the floor. The tap was closed and not leaking co2 when i found the mess, and I had not used in almost a week. Has anyone ever had this happen before? I'm affraid to use that line now....

I am starting to find that the long tap handles keep mine from shutting all the way off some times as well. Sorry to hear that golden nectar was wasted.

I didn't even think about the handles being to long. They are about 6" walnut handles, maybe the weight caused it to crack open. I might to order some self closing facets to see if that solves the problem.
