I’ve been having trouble with one of the taps in my kegerator. It gets stuck, won’t open, won’t close, and the only time it works reliably is when I’ve loosened the collar enough so that it leaks out the handle shaft.
I ordered a new tap, a Ventmatic (formerly Shirron) Forward Seal Faucet from Northern Brewer and got it installed a little while ago. It’s working well so far and I’ve got access to my stout again. We’ll see how it does over time, and if it works out I’ll replace the other one as well.
