Default How long are the rods in a keg?

I heard wall paper trays are good to soak the Cory keg rods. I'm at the store now and they don't sell wall paper trays. I see 24 inch planter boxes. How long are the rods?

It's called a dip tube, there is one of them in a keg, and they are longer than 24". Plus planter boxes are probably not waterproof.

Okay. I'll keep looking for a 30 to 36 inch tray. Thanks also for the name of them!

Paint supply stores have them. Stores that sell wallpaper, Lowes, and Home Depot should have them......

What do you need to soak them for? They gets soaked when you fill the keg.

Wallpaper tray is good for racking canes and stuff like that. I've never soaked a dip tube, but I use the hell out my wallpaper tray.
