    If your pump is for a beer dispensing cooler, it's probably a positive-displacement pump. If you have any unplanned restriction in a vessel jacket, the pump can easily damage the jacket.

    Look into locally sourcing a used walk-in cooler. I think we got our last one for the cost of taking it apart and hauling it off.

    Copper finishes

    I have to replace a couple of nipples on one of our washdown hose bibs today, so decided to do a little experiment.

    I made up the nipples from copper with soldered fitting. I then washed them in...

    Buy used locally. We have two we sourced this way, and one was free for hauling it off.

    I should add that the reason I prefer a preservative wax to a clear-coat is that a clear-coat will fail in places, looking really ratty and requiring stripping the entire clear-coat off to refinish,...

    What style of bottler is it? Is it a counter-pressure filler? If so, the no-fills can usually be attributed to the bottle seals, which, unfortunately, are most likely proprietary.

    If it is beer stone, an acid wash should remove it. Take a sample and put it in some phos acid or even vinegar. If it fizzes, it's beer stone.

    Thanks.

    I'm mulling over the rail lift idea. I already have the chain hoist, so that's half the cost, and I can fabricate any steel parts I need. Problem is, I'd have to have two rails mounted at...

    It's easy enough to purge that small amount of air. Just leave the TC clamp between the valves loose, open one valve, tighten clamp when clean fluid flows.

    Your best option is concrete curbs, either finished with tile or epoxy paint, at least a foot tall. This will cover most of your direct spray area during washdown.
