    Dumb question here. Do they not run the CO2 line to the dispensing location and mix the CO2 at the dispenser area? I know all the slush machines run a CO2 line to the unit. Same with soda fountains. Just curious............ RO water is best.

    depends on equipment. The pumps run on c02 and require around 65-75psi, depending on the pump. The carbonator, wherever its located, requires a c02 line as well. The pressure can range from 75-105 psi depending on the unit. The carb can be located in back with the pumps, up front near the unit, and in some cases, its built into the fountain.

    Do you really want to listen to a syrup pump in your house?
    They are loud.
    Unless you can remote it to a garage or basement and you will still hear them,forget it.
    Carbonator co2 pressure needs to be greater then your city water pressure. That simple. If not no club soda will be made.
    An ice plate just will not work in a frig. A s/s multi-barrel cooler will work great in cooling the club but has slow recovery.
    e-mail if you are really serious and I will give you my # to guide you

    I do remember 1 job I had to order a muffler kit to quite the sure flow syrup pumps up.
    This is an option

    All new flojet G55 pumps come with mufflers. You can pull the muffler off and use it on another, older flojet pump. A shurflo pump requires a fitting on the gas exhaust. They can be ordered from any place you order youre parts. Also, if in a confined airspace that people share with the pumps, you can easily run an exhuast tube from each pump that will exhuast the c02 out of the room and muffle it at the same time.
    You can also run youre bib pumps on compressed air from a home air compressor, but, too much moisture in the line can reduce the life of the pump. It is one less thing to use or waste c02 if theres a problem.

    Hello,

    Which xpan and cp valve are you using? How do you have the s/s lines running with the AEA4430YXA unit?

    thanks

    The closer the carbonator is to the dispensing unit the better the taste.
