I just install a new CO2 tank in our property but getting confused with this pump. What's the blue outlet tube for? Because when I open the CO2 tank, the air is coming out from that blue tube and it's so noisy... Is it normal?

The blue port is the exhaust port for the CO2. As the pump opperates and comes up to presure, CO2 will come out the blue port once the lines are primed it should stop and you should only hear it occasionally as syrup is dispensed. If it runs continusly you probably have a problem with the pump

Great Instructable, I think I might do this but with one of the "Wunder Bar" soda guns like the have in the bars. Now that would be awesome!

Just hook it to my vein dude!
But then you can't taste it!
I think i'd rather have the gun thing where all the flavors mix together. Just because it's easier to store the gun.

Great instruction manual...thanks! I've been working on this for weeks and I'm "getting close" but I'm running into a few little issues. 1st: I have a Pepsi machine and the correct pepsi connector's for BIB (I bought them from Pepsi). I can't figure out how to hook the darn things up to the box. Is there a trick I'm just not getting? Thanks
