Hello Everyone,
I have final put the taps into my fridge. Googled how to do it without drilling a large hole in the fridge liner but couldn't remove it as its a newish fridge and the insulation is stuck to the door liner. Had a dream about it and decided that drilling a hole on the inside the same size as some pvc pipe was the go... I am pretty happy with how it turned out. see the photo's.... Just need to glue them in was thinking having a slight angle on them will stop any leaks from going into the door liner.

If anyone has any tips please share... Also any pictures of how they ran the beer lines as I want to keep it neat and run them along the door liner and into the fridge so that I don't have heaps of beer lines curled up inside the fridge.

Cheers and Beers

From the look of it, you are using shanks that are not long enough to reach through the door, insulation and then inner lining?
And that's why you have the PVC pipe and those are JG fittings nestled inside the pipe?

My shanks/JG fittings protrude into the back of the fridge door just far enough to act as a nice hook that I can loop the beer line around, and then secure with cable ties. That way the lines are out of the way because essentially they hang on the door. It looks messier than it is, because as the door is closed the lines tuck up flat against it.

I use these stem elbows on my JG fittings which are on the end of shanks which intrude into the fridge cavity, like wolfy

Then the lines all run horiozontally to a loop on the edge of the fridge cavity, and from there to the kegs.

since your shanks don't run all the way into the cavity, you could just use some flow bends to add a 90 degree bend in the line without actually requiring any extra fittings...

That's what I'd do :)

Yeah might get me some of those 90 degree line benders. do you use any clips on the inside of the fridge to hold everything against the wall of the fridge???
