Anyone have the Home Depot Canada SKU?

I strongly suspect it's because this is a seasonal item, and it's not exactly gardening season in Canada right now. If you're set on Home Depot, you may be waiting until Spring.

However, it's worth noting that Home Hardware also sells this brand - check your brick and mortars. Bring the flare fitting with you and try it in store. There's nothing super special about the specific model in OP, just that it's the one that OP happened to buy and that it had the right threads to match the flare fitting.

These sprayers are common and can be found. Just hit a couple of gardening stores, and go from there.

Thanks - Makes sense. I'll throw the QD in the car and bring the kids shopping.

I just built a second one of these today so now I have one to fill with BLC solution and the other with rinse water. Home Depot still carries both the sprayer and the A-176 fitting (which has been subbed by Watts LFA-176 for lead free brass) and my primary LHBS had the right liquid post to fit...

Still should be a sticky thread...

Cheers!

Here's my pin lock cleaner. Threading it worked like a charm.

Just used mine for the first time, worked like a charm! I pushed BLC through to the faucet, let it sit for about 20 minutes, then pumped the rest through, poured it back into the sprayer and pushed it through twice more. Then rinsed with hot water. Done. Sooooo much easier than dealing with a keg and gas to clean the lines.

I did have to put tape around the threads of the sprayer as well as the adapter, and it doesn't really develop any significant pressure but enough to push liquid through the lines as a modest pace but IMO that's all that is necessary -- the 15-20 minute rest should be enough for the BLC to "unseat" any beer stone or other gunk in the line (assuming the lines aren't super cruddy, in which case you're better off just replacing them -- if you clean the lines regularly, after ever keg switch or two at the most, the inside of the lines should never get crusty!).

Thanks to the OP for this great DIY project!

Can also use your siphon tool to "push" cleaner through the faucet into the corny without disconnecting much of anything. A 3 inch peice of beer line fit in the nozzle of the Perlick and also accepted my siphon hose.
