Nothing like seeing 8 dollars worth of Camlocks on a 2 dollar bucket!

so are the keg disconnects so you can clean those connectors in place, without having to remove the connectors, etc? you just take off the lid, hook up the connectors and let it go to town?

very cool implementation, but i agree... you need a stainless bucket or something pretty to go with those camlocks

Yes the ball locks go on the keg and shoot starsan or cleaner through the tubes and the spray bar sprays the bottom of the keg also.

Thanks guys! This is just my interpretation of other cleaning buckets that I've seen around.

great design. maybe place the pump level with the carboy to get increased pressure.

How long does it take to get the neck clean? I'm using a similar (but greatly simplified) and it looks like one hour of spraying gets it done.
