SNIP> Also, I
understood that the 2 liter bottles were good because they are made for
carbonated beverages, thus able to withstand some pressure and the
carbonic acid.  What comes in a one gallon jug that has CO2 in it?
(No, it's not a riddle!)

Nothing that I know of. The seal problem is never the lid, it is almost always the tubing. I drill a hole slightly smaller than the fancy soft green tubing I use. I cut a diagonal cut, stick the end through and pull some through.. Then I just use aquarium sealant, not the best long term seal on the tubing. I had the same problem with leaks when the tubing got hard after 6 months or so. Now I am converting to 1/8" brass bayonette fittings, a brass nut, and an O-ring.
