Default oxy clean and o-rings

i would assume no. i've used oxyclean on many rubber gaskets on kegs, i have buna-n for the dip tube and lid o-rings, and silicone for the post o-rings.

I would have to say no given that my lhbs specifically told me to use oyclean to clean my kegs.

I have never seen Oxyclean harm anything. I use it for near everything. Cleaning wise that is

Nope. I use it for all kegerator cleaning. Good stuff and way cheaper than BLC.

if you want buna-n or silicone bulk o-rings, the greenboard has a good FAQ on it:
