Default home made keg/carboy/bottle washer

Hey guys!

I just picked up a 1/3hp sump pump of craigslist for 50bucks. The guy said he used it once to empty about 100-200gals of water for a job last month. I'm in the middle of running it in some PBW to clean it. Is there anything i should be worry'd about in using this to wash/sanitize my beer stuff?

Well i soaked the pump over night and ran it a bit. tore it all apart and cleaned it. looks pretty good. My neighbor is a irragation guy and gave me a ton of parts. He said to keep it all 1 1/2" and reduce at the outlet to keep pressure way up. So we'll see once all the parts come in tomorrow!

Looks like it will make one hellava mess! Are you planning some kind of catch basin to return cleaning solution to the sump?
