Bottle washers make clean up and bottle maintenance much easier to deal with! Using one of our bottle washers is definitely the fastest way to clean bottles and carboys. Works great on build up!
Our stainless bottle washer creates a jet-style stream that penetrates build-up in bottles or carboys. It is automatically activated when a bottle is pressed down onto the unit. Female hose thread connection.
I have had several (3) of these over the past year or two. I have had 2 where the spring has broken on the lever. The wire used for the spring is thin and can not take repeated use. It would be great if they offered replacement springs. That way I could fix the two that have broken and be on my way again.
Sure, it cleans the bottles out well, that's a given. However, mine leaks like a sieve whether attached to a hose, or a facet adapter. The rubber washer for the unit was loose in the bag when I received it. I inserted it fully, trying both it both possible ways. The rubber washer on mine apparently does not seal properly, is likely defective, and even leaks some, when the hose end and sink adapter are wrapped with Teflon pipe tape. Like I said, I may have gotten a lemon, but don't enjoy using a product that gives me a bit of a shower at the same time. :/
Got this when I started brewing after listening to my friends complain about scrubbing carboys with a brush. It works great and worth the money. Will get off the most stubborn stuck on krausen residue from the inside of a carboy, most of the time at least. Its even better for cleaning bottles. Had a few with dried on residue at the bottom, took that right off.
