ISO Ventmatic Ultra-Flo Faucet
« on: August 07, 2010, 09:44:51 AM »
I bought two Ventmatic Ultra-Flo faucets back in 2007 when they were still available.  Now I want to add a third tap to my kegerator setup and can't get another one due to the fact that they were discontinued.  I'd like to have my faucets match, if possible.  So, if you've got one you're willing to sell, PM me.

Thanks!

Matt - I know what you mean about wanting to match - i'm completely the same way.

but...the perlicks look identical, IMO:

I have  3 ventmatics and am looking to expand in the future - i'll be grabbing these I'm sure.

They're very close, but not quite identical.  The Perlicks have a little bit more of a lip where the nozzle meets the main part of the faucet whereas the Ventmatic nozzle is more flush with the faucet body.  I know this is pretty nitpicky, and if I can't find a Ventmatic, I'll just get a Perlick.
