It probably would have an affect long term, but hopefully washing and running clean hot water through it after every use will maximize its life span.

Thank you for posting this! I'm not immediately in need of this kind of volume, but I'd definitely like to try something like this before too long. Your post has plenty of pics and info to make it look like something I could put together successfully!

I'm thinking you could find the correct Pex fittings and Pex line to make it "food safe".

Bookmarked this a while back and just built it last night. Took an hour including the trip to Home Depot. Easy build thanks to this step by step post and now I am ready for my 100 lb hog this weekend.

How has it held up? Any "off taste" noticed? I know the potential was mentioned above.
