So how much do you use? Where do you put it? Do you put it on all o-rings? Like the ones inside the posts, the poppits?

I put it on any seals. Just a small coating is all you need.

I only put it on the external ones and generally only when one is sticking or leaking. Everyone talks about fixing leaks with it but I use it much more to lube.

Have a post that is a little tough to push in? Smear a little on your finger, just a smear not even a visible solid mass, and rub your finger around the outside of the o-ring on the post. Disconnect slides right on after that.

Mental note: No swaps from johnodon's employee "test research" KY beer.
