Frustrating gas leak

I checked my fridge this morning as I was hooking up a drain tube to the drop tray. Looked at the regulator and it read 7 psi. I just changed this tank in Monday. I have a new keg of porter that did carbonate all week but I surely have a leak somewhere. I tested the gas lines with star san to see any foam and couldn’t so I guess my new keg is leaking. Slow leak as it took 7 days to empty but frustrating nonetheless. Can I submerge my gas lines in water in a bucket to check for leaks? Im not entirely convinced its the keg at fault yet.

i could not detect my leak with starsan. but, I found it with dish-soapy water. you might try it too.

soapy water. go thick with the soap. Also, spray and leave it, Drink a brew and come back. tiny tiny leaks won’t bubble right away.

Very frustrating indeed! I had issues with my manifold connections. Couldn’t find the leaks (I had multiple) until I submerged it in a bucket of water.
Happy Hunting! Good luck!
