How does a post mix work?
In simple terms, all soft drink is made by mixing carbonated water with flavours. The soft drink that you buy at Coles or Woolworths is “pre mixed”. This means that the carbonated water and flavour is mixed together at the factory. Because a “post mix” system separates the water from the syrup, no bottles are required.
What is a post mix system?
Post Mix overview. Postmix refers to the system in which a syrup concentrate of the soft drink is shipped to the retailer, usually in a disposable bag-in-box container. Chilled and purified water sometimes mixed with carbon dioxide (from a gas cylinder), are usually dispensed from a soda fountain or soda gun.
How do you know when a CO2 tank is empty?
A head with large, soapy-looking bubbles or foam that disappears quickly are signs of an empty CO2 tank. Keep track of how many kegs of beer you use after you refill your CO2 tank. A five-pound tank of CO2 lasts for five to seven half kegs of beer.

Why is my Kegerator beer so foamy?
The most common causes are: Incorrect Temperature – If the beer is too warm or too cold, it will be more easily disturbed and pour as foam. In most models, the beer line is not refrigerated so the first pour will usually be a bit warmer and a bit more foam.
What is a keg coupler?
A keg coupler, also known as a keg tap, is a vital piece to your draft beer system. It connects the air line (the CO2 or Nitrogen tank) and the beer line to your keg so that everything flows properly. It uses the compressed air from the tank to push the beer out of your draft system and into your glass.
Should I turn off CO2 Kegerator?
If you have no leaks and your beer is carbed you can disconnect it and it will,( and it should ) have no loss off pressure. If you leave it connected you will not waste any c02 at all. Once you have the proper pressure, and no leaks, your good to go.
