Very nicely done. Looks great.

Sorry about posting in your thread so quickly, didn't realize you were still updating it.

No problem. Was limited to 4 pics per post so had to do a few to get them all in.

Almost forgot I have my first two towers sitting in my garage if anyone wants them. Not perfect but free minus shipping. Glad to help out the home brewers out there.

If you build another, you may consider cutting the base close to diameter, then sand it down by using spray adhesive to adhere a sheet of sandpaper to another 3" diameter tube. Then you could sand away any excess in the bottom tube and not have to bust out the heat gun at all. It does mean more PVC mess though.

Faucets are $12.95 got them here - http://www.wholesaledraft.com/catalog.php?styleID=8&brandID=8

The short shanks were $30.00 ea, but I already had two. They have them here - http://www.wholesaledraft.com/catalog.php?styleID=66&brandID=10 but I would not recommend the soldered ones. Look around for the same shank but the stainless tube that connects to your tubing that is not soldered to the shank. They make them screw on. MY LHBS had them in stock. These make it easier to plumb the tower, or I would think any tower for that matter.

Works great! No flex of any kind in the top Tee (I worried about that as well). Yes I do need a wider drain pan, been shopping for one but they are $$$. Probably sell the one I have as soon as I buy a wider one. The one I have has a recessed drain with a tube that runs down into my kegerator into a catch container. Would like a wider one just like it, but again $$$
