I am pretty sure you should not see any of the thread on the faucets. Are you using the wrench to tighten up the fitting? Did you make sure it is lined up in the teeth correctly?
Finally, every tower that I have ever seen allows you to take the top off and by the look at that pic you should be able to take that top off too. It might be tight since it is brand new. Try pushing it out instead of pulling it off.
Hope that helps.
thank you for your reply. I do have ball lock cornie kegs...I am waiting for a disconnect to arrive in the mail. they forgot it on my order.
As for the faucets, I am terrified to take a wrench to the piece that rotates as its so shiny...I am afraid it will scratch. I have hand tightended it only, and made sure the teeth were correct. I honestly cannot imagine it getting much tighter though.
I tried getting the top of that dang thing off both ways. I tried pulling and I tried pushing from the inside....it seems pretty stuck on there! I will try to push it out again....as I think pulling it is a lost cause.
thanks again for replying
