I'll be ordering a 50' 1/2" coil from you sometime soon for an eHERMS keggle system. Do I need to select additional bends "2 Bends (90 degree ends) [+$12.00]" when I order to connect the coil through the keggle wall or will it come with those bends already? Thanks.

You will need to select two additional bends.

Dang! I forgot to send you the specs on that coil! I better get that done before the kid changes his mind about buying it for me.

So what does it look like if you select "No additional bends"? Is it just coiled all the way to the ends or do the ends shoot straight out from the last coil? Sorry, I'm not explaining this very well.

Generally this means both ends come straight out of the choil towards what would be the side of the vessel. The point is to allow the coil ends to go through the walls of the vessel for a permanent mounting. They are mounted with fittings to keep the water from leaking out through the holes they go through.

Adding 2 bends makes the ends go straight up for IC style coil.

Actually it doesn't matter which way the bends go. If it has bends...it's additional bends. No bends is just a coil like this.

If you're using compression 90 elbows you'll want a coil with no bends. If you want the coil ends to go straight into the bulkhead, you'll want to add to bends.

I'll try to make it a little more clear on the website. I've had a lot of people ask this same question.

Not true.

If you order no bends you will receive a spiral coil with nothing bent on either end. Adding the two bends allows for mounting in the side of a keg or pot.

I see now. Yes it is a bit confusing. I thought that no bends meant set up for a keggle through-wall application.

Thanks again!
