Default Help running two co2 lines in a sanyo 4912

Ok I finally broke down and purchased my kegs. This is what I got,
http://www.midwestsupplies.com/products/ProdByID.aspx?ProdID=7739. Now my problem is this. I am going this week and pick up the sanyo 4912 and need to know how to run two co2 lines into the sanyo 4912. I know I could run one thrue the drain hole. How can I get both lines in? Is there a place where I can safely drill?


Any help is very thankful. I am hopping to get it all set this weekend.

1) Keep your CO2 tank inside the 4912
2) Keep the tank outside the 4912, run the line through the drain hole, and split it inside.


EDIT: just noticed you have a double reg, so #2 would be tougher to do

Perfect!!!!!!!! One more question, Does the length of co2 line make any difference? My keg set up anly comes with two 4' sections (one for each regulator) I am not sure if that will be long enough? I plan on keeping the co2 tank beside the refrigerator. Can I get co2 line at homedepot or lowes?

Also what size hole did you drill?

Four feet will be too short.

I have nearly three feet inside the fridge alone. You need that much to be able to connect/disconnect to the corny outside the fridge, and then move the corny inside.

I know that Lowe's (et al) carry high pressure air hose. I'm not sure it's suitable for CO2 beverage applications because (I've heard) it has a pretty strong rubber smell to it.

CO2 line at a LHBS or on line at Beveragefactory.com is only like 70 cents a foot.

To give your kegs and CO2 tank flexibility in movement, I'd think you need more like 7 feet of line for each keg.

Well I want to say thank you for all the tips and pictures. I am going a diffrent route now. I am picking up a chest freezer this weekend

It's only 7.2 cubic foot but it leaves me room to install taps later and maybe a third corny with the right collar build.


Thanks again!!!
