    I would not be surprised if it does fit but its not something that we have tried before so i am not sure. The other thing is a lot of people dont even use that part at all.

    Some customers just use this silicon plug that fits over the malt pipe extension tube:
    https://www.kegland.com.au/intertap-silicone-plug-faucet-tap-spout.html

    This blocks off the tube and then all the wort goes through the grain bed. The only issue is you might have to back the flow off a bit on the recirculation arm.

    Haha that's why I'm not even considering it to be honest, there spare parts cost are very high across the board imo.

    I'll give the bung a go, thanks.

    Different question but do you stock the silicone seals that go around the top and bottom filters?

    Hey Kegland, just brought a brand new MK III regulator from you guys.

    It seems to have an issue, with the low pressure knob completely out the regulator when I open the gas tank tap the high pressure reading goes up to 500kpa but them the low pressure value also starts climbing. To reiterate the low pressure knob is sitting on the table, so there should be no pressure going through.

    Not sure what to do?

    Hi there,

    Just wondering what the quality of your beer line is like? I'm planning on using it with some John Guest push in fittings on the beer side of a keezer and keen to know if your line is prone to leaks when used with push in fittings?

    Cheers

    Can you get an Allen key inside and ensure that the regulator is fully off.

    Could be some dust/dirt/brass on the inside - I had the same issue with the ones from KegKing. Taking the reg apart and cleaning it out solved the issue.

    Explained here:

    Thanks for the reply, do you mind expanding on this?

    Are you talking about putting an allen key inside where the LP knob goes in? The metal piece inside there that sits on top of the diaphragm seems loose when they knob is out.

    Thanks. I have experience pressure fermenting, I was asking for the information that Kegland provided later as the spec sheet wasn't available. This might be useful for other people.

    Thank you for the details!

    Yes and it seems to download a corrupted PDF when I select the link. The 29L is fine. Unsure of the issue as it occurs when I use different browsers or wget. /shrug

    Yes we do stock this silicon u-seal. With that said they are not that necessary and works well without this seal.

    The new regulators manufactured after 2016 had a completely seald seat and seat cap assembly which significantly reduces the chance of contamination in the seal. With that said it can still happen and this can cause pressure creep as shown in the video.

    You need to replace the brass piece that comes with the diaphragm kit here:

    https://www.kegland.com.au/regulator-replacement-diaphragm-and-seat-assembly-885.html

    This will be covered under warranty if it's a new regulator though so please let us know if that is the case.

    The face of the regulator can be removed with a spanner that can open to about 41mm.

    If you are really in a bind you can put the regulator face into the vice then turn the regulator itself by hand. This might enable you to get away without purchasing a larger spanner.
