I opened up my keezer to check the CO2 level on my tank and the bottom of the keezer was filled with Co2 and the bottle was done a few hundred pounds. I turned off the regulator but my keg was flat. I just ordered some new poppets and they should be here in a few days but if that doesn't do it I don't know what to do. I already did a full swap out all of the o-rings on the keg.

Are you getting a good seal initially? Did you do a bubble check of your poppets and vent and lid seals? Also are they pin or ball lock? I had some pinlocks that would leak if the CO2 line wasn't placed just right or got bumped. I replaced the springs and it got better but I was always leary of them.

And if you're in immediate need and a brew store is to far away. KY is suppose to work as well. At least that's what I've heard. :D
