so is that just a simple sump pump that you are using? i really may have to build one of these! just got hot water in my garage/brew house and want to start cleaning there instead of the kitchen. This would really help. i use plastic carboys so any info on what to do or not to do would be great as well! Thanks!

It is a simple submersible pump. In my case I use a Superior 1/3HP, 91330. And then I use it with the standard PVDF rotating spray nozzle that a lot of people on here use for CIP and you can pick up from McMaster. This ensures full coverage.

As for PET carboys - assuming you are using something like a Better Bottle: max temp is 140. Most household water isn't this hot and you don't need the water to be this hot for a good cleaning. Run a bit colder, and longer. Hot water just helps speed up the process a bit.

Hope this helps.

This keg washer is one of the best things I ever built, I washed 18 kegs in 1 1/2 hrs. Before I built it I would have never attempted to clean that many kegs at one time.....
