Im looking into purchasing some quick disconnects for my brewing set up and being short on funds i was looking into these plastic ones on bargainfittings.com. I was wondering if anyone uses them and can give me a little feedback whether you like them or not.

TIA

I was wondering the same thing. Maybe a bump on this thread will help.

We just stocked these a couple months ago but sales have picked up on them.
One of the users on here reviewed them on our site:
http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...product_id=208


I would like some honest reviews of the carbonation caps so the first 10 people to use the following code get the carbonation cap combo free (just pay shipping)




CODE is KCarbCombo

Good for the first 10 people to use. Please post back here with your honest opinion on it.

I picked one up. I just set up a leaky home made carbonator cap with tire valves. I'm looking forward to seeing if this holds pressure better. I saw this option before but was worried about the plastic durability.
I'll let you know how the test turns out. Thanks!

I've been using the setup on my rig and that is the main reason I decided to sell the Kent product.

It comes with an o-ring to form the seal and works great with the 1 and 2 liter coke / pepsi branded bottles I tested it with. I typically use sparkling water bottles as they don't have any residual flavors to wash out.

Reason: Edit for clarity.

ordered! I have the Carbonator but it's leaky. Was thinking of putting a bigger o-ring on it or something.

I use them on my 1/2 barrel brew system with silicone hose connected to them.

Overall I'm quite pleased with them. They are easy to use and connect, just make sure you use some teflon tape on the threaded connections. I've not had any leaks from them at all and I've put 10+ batches thru them.

I'd highly recommend them if you're looking for quick disconnects, and I've had great dealings with bargainfittings!

I shall soon see how it performs. It hopefully will be a convenient way to transport smaller quantities that are intended to be completely consumed and not have to track the expensive glass bombers down at the end of the evening....

Thanks! I was curious about them so I just used the code and only paid for shipping. Looking forward to checking it out. I'll report back here and on bargainfittings.com.

Cheers
