Taprite Regulator Sale at Brew Hardware


Brew Hardware has marked down several Taprite regulators – including both Primary and Secondary models.

Primary regulators are designed to connect directly to your CO2 tank.  Secondary regulators are designed to be fed off of your primary.  That allows you to add additional trunks and line pressures without replacing your primary.

TAPRITE DUAL PRESSURE REMOTE MOUNT CO2 REGULATOR$109.00 $90.99 – 2 pressure regulator with remote mount if you want to keep your CO2 tank outside of your kegerator

TAPRITE DUAL PRESSURE SECONDARY CO2 REGULATOR$75.00 $71.99 – 2 pressure secondary – add additional pressures by hooking this up to an existing primary
