Low Cost CIP System Hack

If you use a milk machine and want an easy way to keep your lines clean but can't afford the crazy expensive CIP (clean in place) systems that recirculate your detergent through the lines to clean them, here is my $25 hack to do the same darn thing.

If you try it and like it the only "upgrade" I suggest is to wire an outlet to a switch. Makes it nicer to use :)

Here is my video on how it works:
