    I am upgrading all my beer/gas lines to EVAbarrier lines, any one used these type of tubing for dip tubes as they seem to be a very tight fit on the ball lock tapping head and if i remove for cleaning i damage/distort the end of the tube making me cut and refit. I tried the 5mm id, may be need to try the 6mm id for tap heads?
    Heating the line to straighten the EVA tube to reach the bottom of keg? will this work?
    Cheers

    Silicon will sink so probably better, grab the ones with the float to attach, or you could put a wine filter on the end for a bit of weight. EVA line would be a bit difficult I reckon
