Well then...it appears there is a problem with the regulator. I'll get in contact with Kegco and have them replace. Once it gets replaced, I'll run the same test and then continue to check for leaks....

If that's the case I'm calling kegco as this is a brand new regulator that came with my kegerator. Maybe I'll call tomorrow and have them send me a new one just to be safe

My new plan is to get the co2 filled and attach the regulator and open the co2 but leave the valves on the gas lines closed to see if it's my regulator/co2 connection or the leak is further down
