Default Sump pump keg cleaner with working rotating cip ball

The description of the setup is in the you tube video. I just wanted to show it is possible to use the brewers hardware cip rotating spray ball with a 1/2 hp sump pump. Works great for soda kegs and sanke kegs!!! I will get better video next time I clean kegs. Here are a few pics too........







As you can see it sprays quite well!!

Looks great! Have you tried it with cleaning a soda keg yet? How did it perform?

It works great on both types. The soda kegs drain a bit faster than sanke kegs. I may go ith a 20 gallon brute so it don't drain so low so fast on the sanke kegs.

Nice, been planning to do similar. Glad to see it working very well here. I haven't been able to decide on a pump yet, so it is nice to see yours working well.
