OK. So I went back, and decided to try a new poppet. Don't know if I needed to, but I also put a gas/liquid post o-ring between it and the adapter, figuring it would help to push the poppet tight against the end. Now it works fine.

Yeah, I was going to tell you that I got a couple nylon washers and put them in against the legs of the poppet. Therefore, the fitting and washers would then be flush against the poppet. It worked great

Does anyone know of an easier way to connect this to a sankey?

At first I was thinking that I could just unscrew the coupling hex nut and get an adapter to adapt that to the pump. But it looks like the thread for the coupling hex nut is an odd size (7/8"-14 (5/8" BSP) (U.S. Beer Industry Standard)) and I could not find an adapter at HD.

Looking at the picture above, I do not have the keg innards to just connect the whole coupler to.

I had an extra ball valve, so I attached that to a quick disconnect and now I can do both sankey keg attachments and corneys.

Awesome idea thanks... building a keezer tomorrow, just tapped my 2nd batch via keg, and I was wondering how people cleaned the lines without taking everything apart...

I love it. Thanks

A nice easy build with idiot proof photos. It took me longer to find my Teflon tape then it did to build it. Thanks for sharing.

Put mine together last night.
Had a post from a keg I used to make my flash boiler. So all I needed was a sprayer and a way to hook it up.
Came up with this. Used a male to female 3/8 flare fitting and some thread tape to hook the post onto the sprayer wand.
