Poppets - Replacement Software?
« on: August 03, 2011, 01:25:57 PM »
Post poppets - the little things in the middle; mine have a little rubber or plastic or something on them - wondering if the soft parts are replaceable, since I'm replacing the other O-rings (lid, 2xtubes, and 2xposts).

Simgo sell the poppets, but never heard of replacing the orings on them. I'll take apart some old ones I've got at home when I get there and see what I can figure out.

Looking around online I think they're supposed to be replaced whole when they wear out.

yeah, have to replace them as a unit....no separate o-rings. Ontariobeerkegs.com has replacements. Best thing to do is figure out what type you have first...as there's about five different types...and they're all not interchangeable.

Just tried taking one of my old ones apart to see if there is any way to swap out the top ring, not a chance.
