A Bottle washer I made
« on: October 27, 2016, 02:45:43 PM »
Threw together this bottle washer, it can clean 24 bottles at a time using a submersible pump( I used my keg cleaning pump). I based it off of the fast racks. soldered some 3/4" pipe and fittings, and notched out the feet of the fast racks to sit on top.



Getting placement for holes and nozzles.



Holes drilled and getting nozzle height





Nozzles all cut and placed



One last test fit check



All soldered and testing with 24 550ml bottles.

Video of it running:

Cool rig! Are the fast racks still functional on their own, or had the mod made them unstable? And are you able to run sanitizer through the rig as well as water? It would be nice to load up the rack, wash, store, then sanitize all on one rack.

Yup, to all those things!
