So how did you get that spray ball inside that better bottle? Or is that not a better bottle?
No better bottle.
The washer was designed to accommodate all 5 gallon US or foreign made NC/CC kegs (universal adapter ring).

I would be interested in seeing your setup for your automated keg washer.
I have been working on this monster on and off for a long time, now it turned into a priority.
Loading/unloading is done manually, the cleaning washing cycle is automatic.
The washer washes, rinses and sanitizes the outside and inside of the keg.
During the outside wash the In/Out tubes get cleaned too.





Outside sprayers



Control panel swings out of the way during keg loading/unloading.


More pics to come.

Cheers,

I think the only thing it is missing is a hot wax cycle.
