my sister bought a kegerator and draft tower for her back deck

I'm trying to help her replace the vinyl lines and extend the lines about 5' from below the deck up to the counter / tower.

I have EvaBarrier lines 4x8mm lines on my corny kegs, but I don't know if those would fit a Sanke coupler for her commercial sixtel kegs?

It looks like there is a hex nut and maybe a crimped clamp holding the vinyl lines in place? Is there a press/threaded fitting or quick disconnect that would allow her to connect and replace EvaBarrier lines, and swap out the lines once a year?

Or otherwise a recommendation on the best line type to fit with a commercial keg system?

I live several hours away, I can't see the connections and I'm trying to send her links of stuff she can buy to get her setup

Here is what you use to connect 8mm OD EVABarrier tubing to a Sanke coupler - for both beer and gas connections...


The John Guest equivalent can be found here:

You can get sankey keg adaptors from kegland. It makes sankey kegs more suited to home brew, IMO.

It’s basically a 2” TC fitting. Throw in a slimline floating dip tube (caskwidge float) and it’s difficult to beat.

And here's a sankey coupler already fitted with duotight (even if you just want to see the photo).......


And here is a traditional sankey coupler outfitted with ball lock posts......


My advice would be for your sister to go with evabarrier and duotight. They are pretty user friendly, especially with the cheap faucet wrench and tube cutter (which has a duotight release spacer on the back).....
