I just bought a 3 way splitter this item here

http://www.kegworks.com/product.php?...cat=801&page=1

Now my PSI gauge on my regulator will not go above or below six no matter which way I turn it. I amd going from the regulator to the CO2 splitter then to my kegs.

I am also running low on CO2 could that be the problem?

Possibly. Do you have a dual gauge setup? What is the high pressure reading?

If you're out of gas it could be the problem. You might try taking the plastic cover off of the gauge and make sure the needle isn't rubbing on and getting stuck on the dial face. I've had that happen with a couple of regulators.

Well 136 dollars later its fixed. I had to buy a new CO2 tank and get my original hydro tested and a new valve on it. But now at least I have 10 lbs of CO2
