Default Quick Fix - Leaking Pressure Relief Valve

Hey guys, Here is a quick fix for a leaking PRV (Cornelius kegs):

Two layers of electrical tape on the bottom of the prv. I pressure tested it. It is holding 5psi. I will report back on the longevity of this fix.

If anybody else has a leaking prv give this a try and let me know if it works for you too.

Keg lube will also do the trick, without introducing something potentially nasty to your beer.

I have not tried keg lube, but I have read several times that it will eventually leak again, I'm guessing once it washes off. The non-adhesive side of electrical tape appears to be non-pourous, and once properly sanitized I do not believe that it can introduce any flavors.
