hey bill, make sure you have your gas line on tight as i have lost an entire bottle of gas. also be sure that you have good o-rings. i lost a half a keg because the beer leaked out of the post. make sure all you lines are tight by removing the gas lines and turning off the gas over night. if you have no leaks the regulator will stay pressurized. i am sure there are more tips, but those are the ones i have encountered.
