Default Carboy/keg washer

Ran across a sump pump today at the local scrap yard, It looked bran new..so i figured the 15.00 they wanted for it was worth a shot. We needed a keg/carboy washer anyway I happened to have a 15 gallon Snake that we had outgrown and was getting ready to drop off at the local scrap yard so I figured what the heck I would take the pump home and make up a carboy/keg washer..thinking I had enough 1/4" tubing to attach the pickup and gas lines...fail...I didn't but
I had enough copper and connections to assemble the unit - the keg conecgtions...tomorrow any way here's some pics of the unit. A 6.5 gallon carboy sits in the hole that was cut in the keg originally, soda kegs will fit down inside..

That last shot is... disturbing.
