Ale being pushed through Handpull when not in use


I have two hand pulls working off the same gas lift pump but the pump is pushing beer through to the hand pull even when not in use – I have adjusted the pressure down but it still happens after a while – am i doing something totally wrong? – If I take the gas lift pump out then the beer will not pull through properly and it seems to be pulling air in from somewhere

Well it is quite a normal procedure to have 2 cask beer engines running off 1 gas pump. It sounds as if you may have a problem with the back check valve on the one line. The fact you say air is being pulled in suggests it could be the seal or the hop strainer on the connection to the cask tap. They may need replacing. Give tech services a call.
