So far I haven't had any problems, after about 8 years I did have to replace the 2" bung o-rings, bought a package of 25 from McMaster for $10. So far, I haven't had to replace the 6" cap gasket, the oldest one is 10yrs, I use petrol-gel on threads and o-rings.

I have two of the 15G ones. Lids are quite heavy duty with a good soft (replaceable) silicon gasket inside. The Lid takes about 2 revs to fully tighten and seal. Your SO2 levels will drop like a similar sized barrel (micro-ox) but there is no evaporation at all.
