My 525's leaking. I've had it for about a year, and have cleaned it regularly, disassembling, soaking, and brushing in between kegs. I'm getting a leak from the top of the bonnet after each pour. I can usually get it to stop by wiggling the tap handle, but it's still annoying. Also had a leak at the rear of the faucet at the connection to the shank that I fixed by tightening the coupling nut up. I've read of similar experiences that others have had, but this is frustrating -- great faucet otherwise, but why these problems? I called Perlick to ask for replacement washers, and was told by a technician that this faucet should not be disassembled during cleaning, but rather, soaked assembled. Anyone with similar experiences? Seems like this faucet has a few design issues, or that it's just plain finicky.
