I’m curious, did you by chance notice a “musty” smell from the affected fittings?Popping in here to share my similar experience. Full Duotight setup, from William's. I've only had them for a couple of months, maybe 2.5 kegs' worth. I've had about 4 flares and at least one checkvalve have their collars disintegrate as well. Both inside and outside the fridge. Gas and liquid.
I'm chalking this up to Star San as well because I definitely soaked some of them for an extended period of time. My two regulators seem fine so far. I had no idea Star San was a problem until finding threads like this out of frustration. Debating whether to replace >$50 of new duotight or go back to more reliable equipment. What a waste.
I also just invested in Value Brew's "Locking Clips." These were definitely not introduced to any StarSan and are also prone to snapping. I'm really turned off the entire Duotight concept.
