  10. "alb" post=337142 said: Been having trouble with my keezer set-up leaking CO2. A 5# tank should easily last for 10 5-gal kegs but mine lasts less than one, and I can smell CO2 when I open the lid. This last time it was good for about 3 days then the needle started dropping and 3 days later it's empty. :shoot: The gas man said he checked my connections at the gauge and the hose and it's not the problem. So either my disconnects or the lid must be leaking, but 2 different kegs have been involved, not at the same time. I sprayed soapy water on the fittings, but no bubbles came up to indicate where the problem could be. Any other ideas from my beer brother and sisters?? I can't afford (and wouldn't if I could!) to refill my tank every half keg! as a WELDER for [ 23 years ] its a very good to use [ soapy ] san star / soapy water,,,, to check for leaks, this is the best way to check for all / any leeks when using CO2 ,,,, A BACK ROOM OR CLOSET OF CO2 IS VERY DANGEROUS ,,,,, please double check all fittings ,,, thank you alb,,,,,,,,, :silly: ,,,
