Default Faucet collar leaks when cleaning system

Hi,
I was cleaning the beer lines on my new (to me) kegerator and when I was pumping the solution through, liquid was leaking out of the faucet collar's holes. I'm assuming this is not supposed to happen. I have yet to have a keg tapped in the kegerator, this was the last step. I have one reserved for sunday, but I'm assuming that something is broken and leaking and needs to be replaced.

I have two taps on the tower and both are leaking when I pump the liquid through. How can I fix both?

Thanks in advance
Adrian

Did you make sure to use the red rubber gasket on the cleaning pump?

Goes between the fittings from the pump and the faucet.

hmm, nope, didnt see a rubber washer anywhere, so that is most likely the problem. Guess I'll have to go track a couple down today that will fit

It was prolly inside the bottle.

Same thing happened to me the first time I used that contraption.
