leaking Co2 connections

(1/3) > >>

cempt1:
I am new to kegging and seem to be going through Co2 a lot quicker than my research indicates that I should.  I have been checking for leaks by spraying with star san and have found 2 that do not seem to completely resolve by tightening.  They are at a connection from the regulator to a 2 way manifold and at a connection coming off the manifold.  Is there another solution for small leaks like these other than tightening?  I have read not to use teflon tape.  Would keg lube on the threads work?

why no teflon tape? I've used that at that connection with no ill effects. in fact mine came that way.
