    It's also worth noting that you can use an AC solenoid in a DC circuit, but not visa-versa.

    Our Asco Red Hats can be converted with a rebuild kit. You need to be sure you are using an AC rebuild...

    We use John-Guest style push fittings, but not that brand. I think most of ours are Norgren brand. With polyethylene tubing, these provide a positive seal and retention, and make it easy to swap out...

    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.

    We bought ours through Nether Ind. They don't seem to be rebuildable, either. The butterfly valve is rebuildable, but not the cylinder. Butterfly valve seats are $35 each, so as they wear out, I'll...

    We use and have for years been using the regular vinyl beer line--3/8" ID X 3/4" OD from our kegs to our beer pumps. Never been a problem and it's much more flexible and easier to keep neat.

    You will need a PID controller--we use Fujis--and some RTD cable to hook them up. The special RTD cable probably isn't essential, but it's made for use with them and is very high quality wire....

    We, too, dealt with the problem by simply labeling before filling. The pros, for us, far outweigh the cons.
