skid marks from the rubber bases of cornies are a pita, if considering servicing/cleaning the keg in the bath, do so on a non slip bath mat or you will be scrubbing the tyre marks out for days.. my solution has been to do all things corny cleaning out on the patio, and sit the keg on a tray when filling,,

I had to google the product you used and tbh i dont know how long that would stand upto a full keg dropping a few inches onto a hard floor time n time again.

a rubber paint product or perhaps a silicone from a tube could be sculpted over if you have a need to keep floors pristine where kegs will sit for serving?

it was more from the top rubber that i noticed the black coming off all over tbh.
i will see how it goes with the 2 coatings of autoglym rubber care i have put on it..

Yep I got 3 and the black coming off them is a right pita,may look at something similar to what you're doing with it

i have seen some rubber paint that may be worth 20 mins or so to coat the rubber.
will sort it properly may try that.

Spoke to the Pub landlady last night, she ordered me a 6.35KG there and then, they use 60/40 bottles, I assume this will be ok for home use too?
