I'm not sure. My only answer to that would be "enough" in that it works very well for me but I do not know what PSI it gets up too. Maybe I'll check to see if it's listed on the Home Depot site under the product description.

The only downside is size. Home Depot has some with larger containers but this is the one that everyone seems to be able to get the posts onto easily.

Also, I would think a pin lock would work. Check the other thread; I think it's been done.

Edit: I looked it up and the PSI wasn't listed.

I have got to make one of these. I've been turning beer over so fast that I hadn't been using all 10 of my kegs. Had one with BLC and one with Starsan. Now I'm looking at making beers for winter and I want those kegs for big beers. This thing is definitely the answer!

Another vote for the DIY beer line cleaner (linked above).

It is easily the cheapest, easiest to build, most bang for the buck useful item I have made for homebrewing. Thanks to that I can quickly and easily clean my lines every time I change a keg.

Btw, on the DIY line cleaner device - because of the tip replacement (with the ball post) the unit doesn't hold pressure if it's not connected, the trigger functionality is gone. You plug it in to your system then start pumping away and it'll stop when it runs out or you need to pump more. If you pump the unit while it's not connected it'll start dribbling out.

Mine seemed to hold pressure. Maybe your poppet isn't seated correctly.

If you saved the original gasket from the tip, put it in backwards and the trigger functionality is perfect...

Cheers!
