Default Keg / Carboy Washer (yes another) . . .

Thanks to everyone on HBT for providing the info needed for me to be able to build this sweet contraption. 1/2" PVC throughout and the Pump is from Harbor Freight, item #98342, $59, Pacific Hydrostar 1400 GPH 1/4 HP, and it kicks ass.

Why do you have a valve on your carboy?

Don't care about the valve in the carboy... Is that a Fat Boy behind it??

BTW, that 'cleaner' looks like it could also do some damage to a person. "Have a seat... You might feel some.... pressure"

Thanks Ed.

It's not a Fat Boy but a Kawa Vulcan. I really enjoyed my ST Heritage but got tired of paying HD prices so went with metrics.

Don't know the actual name of the blue thing but it's for draining / drip drying a carboy.
