Chinese copy of the pegas eco tap
reports from other forums that it works as well as the original and is at least half the price. I do recommend these things to make bright bottling from keg easy.
I like to keep a bottle of stimulant handy in case I see a snake, which I also keep handy.

The coopers bottles from tesco are a good choice for PET bottles - you can click and collect and sometimes they have them on offer - £7 for 24, buy a few boxes..

I have a lot of glass bottles so I'm planning to do the modification with the washer and use those but I will see how well it works with them.

I will definitely need one, so could I get a couple off you please? Have you got one that is cut already that I could copy?

Actually I just watched that video of how they work so I don't think I will need to copy one. Looks like the washer is needed so that the washer around the neck of the bottle will sit on the lip of the holder and be pulled up onto the nozzle for a good seal. I would like a couple of the washers though please if you have some spare.

yes it's pretty straightforward. a few minutes with an angle grinder should do it. Will get you a couple of washers.
