Party tap barb to push fit pipe

Post by soupdragon » Tue Apr 30, 2024 11:21 pm

Hi all

Does anyone know the size of the pipe that pushes onto the barb of a party tap? The other end of it goes into a push fit. I'll try to measure it tomorrow but if anybody knows in advance I'd be grateful.
I've sprung a leak by the way so need to cobble something together asap

Cheers Tom

If you are using a Cornie a better solution is to connect a beer tap with flow control to a beer out connector.

With a balanced system I find that party taps work well enough. What would you say is the benefit of a flow control tap over a balanced line?

1/4” ID tubing on mine. A short length of 3/8” John Guest tubing to a 3/8-3/16 reducer.

Yeah I like them. They make a good bottling device too.
