Currently finishing up my kegerator in the basement with 4 taps in the kitchen, one of which will be a dedicated seltzer line. The rise is 13ish feet high. I can't seem to find any information regarding the length of the line I'll need. I've read that the psi should be somewhere in the 25-30 range depending on preference (more or less bubbles). I know what the length of my beer lines will be so I'm wondering if any soda people out there have any ideas and can help.

Thanks in advance for the help. I'm using the regular morebeer vinyl 1/4" ID hose.

A little googling found this. I don't have any experience with rise and beer lines

"For every foot rise in the beer line add .5 lb restriction and for every foot of line add .8 lb restriction for 1/4” line or 2.2 lb restriction for 3/16” hose."

I run seltzer at about 40 psi at 37f and run about 25 foot of 3/16".
