I just did what Craig recommended. Perfect. I was about to head back to the brew shop and return my new taps. Glad I searched.

Thanks Craig, the sanding trick worked perfectly to stop my faucet from leaking. I also added a little keg lube to the rubber seal for good measure.

Well, I twisted mine on as tight as it would go and still leaked like crazy. So I took it apart and sanded the top of the "body" (the part attached to the hose) where the male threads are so that I could twist the lid on farther. I hope I'm describing it adequately. After I did this it doesn't leak a drop anymore. Hope that helps.


I have a picnic faucet that leaked about a pint worth of beer if left connected over night. I tried the fix above and no more leaks!
