Hi, I have a kegerator setup and in the past have only used it for beer. I have done some reading and people suggest that I at least get different lines to serve the soda from (25-30'). Will I need to worry about off flavors if I use my Perlick taps, kegs, and all connections (everything but the liquid line) to serve both soda and beer?

Not some sodas, but root beer is something that the flavor just will not come out of. I'd keep one keg just for root beer, if you're planning on having rootbeer. The seals and o-rings will never smell of anything except root beer, but the stainless parts (the faucet, the keg itself) will clean up just fine.

How about cider? Would I need to worry about off flavors from that?

A good deap cleaning and vinagar rinse helps rid cider.

Only problem is the perlick faucet.. they have no flow control to run standard beer length lines.. either you have to dump the head pressure and push at a low psi or get really long lines to compensate for pushing at 25-30 psi..
