I got a tripple valve for the kegerator that I am building. I have the size to run the lines. What I would like to know is if I need special CO2 lines. The keging kit came with the redline attached to the balllock that goes on the keg. Here is the plan... correct me before I blow up the house.
1. Take the red line off and attach it to the triple valve out line. (any clamp advice welcome for all attachaments
2. 5/16 normal beer lines from triple valve to kegs and attached with balllocks. Will the normal lines be ok for pressured co2?
3. keg to tower.
Pics not to great but hopefully you get what I need help with.

When I asked for gas line at my LHBS they gave me 5/16 vinyl hose... same stuff as the beer lines, just bigger.

As long as it's vinyl, and pressure rated (only need like 40PSI max, you doubt you'll be pushing more then 30PSI). I like micromatic lines..
