I found an online store that has the Accuflex Bev-Seal Ultra 3/16" I.D. line in 50' rolls so I went ahead and ordered that as well. I'm getting this beer line problem solved once and for all!

I have the teflon type washer.

Looks like I may have solved it. The gas pressure, while low, has been steady at 250psi for the last 36 hours. Not sure what is left in the tank but hopefully I'll...

Well I think I found the leak, or one of the leaks, where the regulator screws onto the tank. I put some soapy water there and had a bubble form on the edge. It couldn't have been a fast leak as you...

I had my tank filled at Praxair...it was the first time it was filled, don't know if that makes a difference in the cost but I agree $41 is expensive. I will check around.

I checked it again this evening and it has dropped further and sits at the 400psi mark. The fridge is no colder so I'm not really sure what would explain this. Back to thinking there is a leak. I'm...
