Is it okay to use PBW on your keg lines, accessories, and faucets? Or is better to use a line cleaner like BLC?

I routinely run the hot water w/ B-Brite from the keg I'm cleaning then rinse well with warm water as I rinse the keg.
About every 6 months I clean my whole system using BLC using a line cleaner kit.

I purge with water all the time. To clean I use Hot PBW, then purge with star san, then with water. Don't let the PBW sit in the lines to long.

I also disassemble and clean my faucets between every keg and sometimes with the same keg if its been awhile since I poured out of that tap.
