    Noisy solenoid

    Neat idea.
    Do you rinse PAA before use?

    I have DIN fittings so it's not that simple to connect ends, I would have to have nipple coupling.

    You could recirculate it with pump, from drain to racking arm pointing up.
    In this phase, after chilling eventual sucking air in pump shouldn't be a problem.

    If pump outlet diameter is 25mm, then CIP tube for all tanks should also be 25mm?
    Otherwise, it doesn't make sense for me.. or I'm missing something here.
