I started using sankey kegs for fermenters so I made up this washer to clean them and found it works well on carboys also. The tip is just a 1/2" to 3/8" stainless coupling. I tried a couple different tips but that one seemed to work the best. It's a good multitasker too, I use it to pump ice water through my immersion chiller and as a sump to drain cleaner from my kettles and pump into the sink.
Cheers
Mike

I like the stainless vessel, for milk, right?
I'm planning to build one like this, just picked up a pump:
