Anyone out there made a DIY washer/sanitizer set up for cleaning casks (firkins and pins)? If so, would you share how you built it?

Thanks!

Catfish, I cannot remember his name, but I called and spoke to a super friendly asst brewer at Brewer's Union Local 180 in Oregon who walked me through their entire DIY cask cleaner. (3 sinks, a couple of pumps, etc). He was very helpful and I plan on calling him back for better details at some point soon when I am ready to build one. I just called their main number from their website and asked to speak to a brewer and introduced myself, as I knew they did a lot of cask and was wondering how they clean them (after getting a quote for a pre-built commercial machine). I would give them a call. I don't know if they are on here or not, but a simple call should answer your questions. It was not a very complicated system and seemed to work well.
