huh... thats um... well sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and a beer tower is not a phallic symbol.

Yep. 3" PVC with a basic toilet flange and a cap. The PVC pipe is cemented to the flange (bottom) but the cap is just lightly tapped on so I have access to the plumbing inside. I ran two hoses up the middle and for a quick insulator, I grabbed a half-used roll of paper towels and that fit nice and snug up the PVC with the hoses running down the middle.

I used 3" machine screws and nuts to anchor the flange to the top of the fridge.

Can I get some more info on that?
Like the how tall it is, maybe some pics of the inside? What is the make-up of parts for the Faucets. I am very new to this stuff and I am cluless as to what all I need.

Thanks Dude. They work out really well. Got quiet a workout this weekend with a big party and about 20-25 beer drinkers lined up at the taps all afternoon. Now if only I could figure a way to rid the world of fruit flies.

Just read the bit about the papertowels and had a bit of an idea...

What if you took two small PVC tubes and held them in the middle of the larger pipe... then sprayed foam insulation into the tube (with appropriate covering to prevent it from getting all over the place, of course). I'm thinking this might be better for insulation. Then just run the tubing for the beer inside the smaller diameter tubing.

Just a simple little idea for less energy waste... thought I'd share...
