Default I'm on "Pimp my system"

My keg/carboy washer made it on "Pimp My System."

Very nice. A new DYI project to tackle this year.

Do you have an estimate on your total cost for this setup?

Dude, you've let dirty carboys sit for WEEKS before cleaning them?? Do you let you dirty dishes sit in your sink for that long too? lol

Takes me about 5 minutes to clean a carboy to perfection with a carboy brush and hot water. I clean them within and hour or so of emptying them though.

I would think it minimizes the frequency that you would need to disassemble them since anything touching beer is getting hit with PBW and sanitizer.

you won't ever get your carboys completely clean with just hot water and a brush. You need oxyclean or PBW to get all that stuff your brush misses.

$100 or less. Same price as the "mark's washer" but far more powerful and durable. The pond pump is the most expensive part at ~$60-$70. Don't go less than 600gph.
