I want to take advantage of the 10% off offer from and order a couple of Ventmatic faucets. I'm just using a picnic tap right now so I'm unfamiliar with complete faucet assemblies. What do I need to buy in addition to the Ventmatics?
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

You'll need shanks and a way to connect your shanks to beer lines. Some shanks already have nipples on them and others require either a nipple or a screw-on connector.

I plan on doing the same thing. Can I use my existing shanks with them?

You should be able to use the same shanks unless you have something really funky (like 1920's tech or something).
