I am looking into getting this fridge.

I basically have two 5 gallon ball lock kegs that are roughly 9" in diameter (the rubber adds width to the 8.5" keg). For those of you that have this fridge,...

This is what I was planning on getting. You don't run into any flow rate problems? How would you compare the flow rate to, say, an average garden hose from an outside faucet?
