O-Rings should be kept clean and free of dust and debris. They should also be inspected to ensure that they have no tears or aren't old and cracky.

O-rings also benefit from slight (not overly generous) lubrication. Using a pair of clean gloves you can work the lubricant around evenly.

We recommend Magic Lube but there are many options. Your local hardware store or SCUBA shop can help you with this.

Make sure to also inspect the gland (place where the o-ring sits) for dust and debris. Even small hairs and grains of sand can cause a leak at high pressures. This cleans easily with a q-tip.
