I have a pin lock keg that won't hold pressure. It leaks at the bottom of the threads where the post screw on. Is there anything else this keg might be good for? Paul
I should have been more clear. It doesn't leak from the threads, it leaks from the bottom of the threaded post that the gas in post screws on to. Does that make sense?
I noticed one of mine looked like it was leaking right below the threads where they disappeared into the rubber. They were used kegs and I didn't have new orings yet. I replaced them Sunday and it solved the problem. It was the oring that that goes under the dip tube that was bad. I swore it was leaking from somewhere else but the oring was the culprit.
