Treat it no differently than you would your own kegs. You don't have to have it on co2 all the time, but make sure to put 10 to 12psi in the keg before disconnecting it from the gas.

Great deal. I use their 62 quart (15.5 gallon) version of this pot. Has served me well for almost 2 years now, highly recommend any size from Bayou Classic.
