Are you boiling your water before kegging or buying water to keep any nasty stuff out? How long of 3/16 ID do you recommend, and what pressure for serving?
Boiling your tap water?.... where exactly do you live? Kidding. If you can drink it it should be fine for seltzer. Since you aren't adding anything to the water in the keg (e.g. sugar or something for bacteria to eat) there should be no real growth (similar to the pipes in your house).
I usually carb seltzer at 30PSI. I serve using 1/8" line using about 6 feet. If you are using 3/16" I would use 15 to 30 feet.
My process for seltzer is fill keg with water from tap. Run CO2 @ 30PSI into the liquid in side and shake for a few minutes (to speed up the process). Then stick it in the fridge with the gas and liquid lines connected. Wait 2 days.... and serve.
