Default need info for bottle washer/sanitizer

Not long ago I read a post where a guy had created a bottle sanitizer by using s fountain pump and some PVC pipe. I've tried to find that article so I could ask the person directly but so far no luck.

Here is the basics of what this guy/gal did - they created a two position wasing station from PVC pipe that fits in a shallow tub. There are two upright lengths of 1/2" PVC pipe with holes drilled in the sides and these are attached to a central tube with "T's" so it will sit properly in the tub. This is connected to a fountain pump and when a bottle is placed over the upright pipes it forces the sanitizer out the side holes spraying the inside of the bottle thoroughly.

I want to replicate his bottle washer but I'd like to know what size (gph) pump he used before I go out and buy one. They seem to have pumps from 60 gph to hundreds of gph so having a little advice would be appreciated.

Anybody have an answer to this?

Well neither of those was the post I saw but they did answer the question of pump size. It also helped with an issue I just discovered - 1/2" PVC is too big to fit inside the bottle! Copper pipe will fit so that looks like the route I'll take.

Revvy, you're the best!
Thanks
