First you will notice that these taps are a bit different from the ones brewers usually see. The screw on the right side of each tap is an adjustment, it increases a gap inside.
Pardon the picture, it shows some residue from the NeverDull that I hadn't wiped off yet. That is good stuff for cleaning chrome surfaces.
The spring is held in place by the cups and the screw clamps it all into the valve.
On the left side you see the adjustment screw. The right tap has it comepletely removed.
The red grommet is slightly larger and goes on the liquid out side of the keg.
Notice how that nasty soda had stained the plastic over the years. I had never heard of Teem soda until seeing this fountain. There are removable badges like this on the customer facing side of the unit to show what is being served.
From this top down shot you can see the coils in the ice water tank. It looks like there are more than 12 feet of tube for each tap.
I filled the tank with water and about 1/2 cup of bleach and let it sit for a few hours. That took care of most cleaning, I still had to scrub the top edges due to the overflow port. Obviously the overflow port keeps you from filling all the way to the top.
Rebel Brewer). Doesn't that front look nice now. ;)
I'll say at this point that the Cornelius company made this gear very easy to take apart. It looks like I could have just removed a couple more screws and been able to take the coils out of the tank. Every surface seems to drain in a logical way. Notice the tube in the lower left - that will drain the water tank. Anything that leaks in the area shown here will drain through the short pipe poking out from the middle behind the taps in this picture. When it's all together that pipe is poking through the drip tray. So the drip tray is really draining any area you can expect liquids to be.
Notice that shiny surface now.
