I, too, have had friends bad-mouth the plastic kegs because they always
seemed to have some problem staying sealed.

However, the Rotokeg I bought some years ago has been a trustworthy
friend. My first experience with it did not turn out too well, but a
friend (my brewing mentor) pointed out a technique which has
eliminated all subsequent problems. COAT THE SEALS AND O-RINGS WITH
VEGETABLE OIL BEFORE ASSEMBLING PRIOR TO EACH BATCH. That's all it
takes for the seals to seat correctly. I have had (undisturbed) keg
batches retain pressure for months without adding CO2.
