Do you know exactly where the leak is?
If you don't:
Put it in a bathtub full of water when pressurized, bubbles will come from the hole.
Then seal it with epoxy or sealant.
If you do:
Seal it with epoxy or sealant.

Way to stay on topic guys.

Is the valve on the right way? (Look for arrows molded into the body, they should point toward the barrel)
