Gas Line Lengths...Pressurization
« on: February 16, 2012, 02:41:39 PM »
I'll be installing my Perlicks, etc., in the fridge this weekend, and I think I have everything covered except to buy some gas line/hose today.

Do the hoses that will run from each valve of the 4-way manifold have to be the same length?  I'm guessing "no", but I want to make sure.  Obviously, two cornies will be right under the manifold (which I'm mounting on the inside wall), and two will be about 2FT away on the opposite side of the fridge. 

I will keep the CO2 tank outside the fridge.  I already have the main gas line/hose to go through the fridge wall.  Do I need some sort of gasket or grommet to run the line through in the fridge wall, or can I just drill a tight hole and call it good?  Options?

No, they can be any length.  Just make sure they are long enough to reach where they need to easily.

You can drill a hole, put the line through, and use some silicone to seal it.
