You're dealing with rubber O rings and pressurized gas, overtime it's going to wear out.
Thanks for the part numbers. That makes it a ton easier. I'll pick some up tonight and also continue to tape the threads every fill up anyways. Might as well double up on leak prevention.

Yeah, I expect things to wear. But after a little under two months of use? Eh...probably just the cheapest O-rings the company could find. Wouldn't surprise me if they were "old stock" to begin with.
