ok, what can I say? I can only speak from my experiences. I spent a long time fiddling with my
system until I came across the Flo-Gates and they were the only thing that worked for me. I

Getting a little rude here, but I don't just think, I experienced it. A few posts back I wrote
how I installed 25-30 feet of beer line and tested it. The beer was still flowing out way too
