Where do I get new line cleaning buckets

I’ve just started work at a pub and they’ve been using a single container for their line cleaning.

 

Will Heineken provide another one free of charge. I just want to know what my bargaining position is.

    Yes agree with Mike, by using the same container you are sterilizing the container first, before flushing the water through. Otherwise you are just reinfecting the lines with all sorts of bacteria, or even worse stagnant water. Yeoch! 8)

  2. Simple answer is no. Only one cleaning vessel is supplied, due to various H & S issues. You are expected to wash out the vessel after using cleaning fluid before you use it for fresh water.

    I don’t follow the various health and safety issues argument. Surely the greatest health and safety issue is accidentally ingesting the deadly cocktail that is beerline cleaner. Several pubs I know have 2 of the same model of container issued, appropriately coloured coded. In fact, at one of my recent places we still had the S and N issued instructions pinned to the back of the cellar doors which discussed the use of TWO containers, one for solution, one for water. Keeping any container clean is important though, good point

    There are some disgusting cleaning containers out there, mostly in pubs with two containers. It is understandable why they don’t issue two any more.

    Why it is safer to use two rather than one? Why is the water container always half full? Do they pour the water away before they clean the lines next time, I don’t think so. I agree they should only issue one cleaning bottle. If it cuts down on people cutting corners.

  5. All very laudable arguments I am sure. The real reason you only get one wash out bottle is because the brewers/service providers are too bloody tight to pay for 2. Just as they now provide service via the phone and send equipment for you to repair yourself through the post. Bloody cheek.

  6. There is nothing stopping you buying your own cleaning bottle. The reasons for only having one have already been stated here, but really add to that 50,000 pubs why should the brewer supply 2 to each when you can only use one at a time anyway? Its not like all pubs actually use them anyway, perhaps the pubs who feel they don’t need to clean lines can return them then the brewers can distribute them to the ones that do! everyone will be happy then lol
