I read this thread last Spring and built this Beer Line Cleaner. It works great! I use it all the time.

Does that make sense?
Absolutely!! Thanks for the awesome idea!!

I use this exact same system but I didnt buy the corney fitting I just slipped a piece of tubing over the end of the sprayer that also fits over my taps faucet. I run the solution through backward and just remove the corney end fitting that plugs into the keg. Wash rinse replat the corney fitting and done. For the cost and ease of use this systems is better IMO.

Does that make sense?
What if you use pin lock kegs, does that post screw onto the pump assembly?

No. A Firestone post won't work on a pin lock. I haven't tried to fit one together for a pin lock. Has anyone out there tries that?

I don't know if a pin lock fits. I haven't tried it.
