I use this kit, http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-beer/line-cleaning-pid-CK-1100.html
you still have to remove the "guts" of disconnect, which takes 10 seconds. I put the disconnect, guts and the disassembled tap into a small container. Then pump enough cleaner through to where everything is submerged. Let sit for 15 minutes, then empty pump, flush with cold water and reassemble. On cleaning times you will get 50 different answers.
If you want your beer to taste fresher longer, I recommend at the least once a month. If your beer doesn't last that long, good for you.
