Who said anything about cheap?!?

I finally broke down and bought the $100 one at Menards.

Otherwise you'll probably just have to watch CL

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

I just made a very simple and effective washer I saw in an old Zymurgy magazine 1994 or so...hooking a pump up two two beverage lines. Take your cleaner (your choice) with a gallon of hot water and pour into your keg. Seal and run lines opposite of the usual...in to in on the pump and out to out on the pump...turn over onto two carboy cleaner (blue) holders so the lines are free and run the pump for 10-20 minutes. This will clean anything out including the poppets, etc. Rinse in the same way and finally with a sanitizer. You are now ready to put something tasty back into the keg!

Holy sheep dip! That keg washer looks like something out of an "I Love Lucy" episode.
