Frequently Asked Questions

Who is using CellarControl?
We have venues all over Australia – From small country pubs and clubs, to large metropolitan pub groups. Check out Our Clients page or Contact Us to see who is using CellarControl in your area.
Does it work with ciders?
Yes, CellarControl works with all ciders. You can clean these lines every 6 weeks, along with your standard beers.
Do you have any contracts?
There are no lock-in contracts – you pay month-by-month for the system.
Does CellarControl effect beer flow?
CellarControl is installed on the exterior of the beer lines, and does not contact the beer directly – So there is no effect on beer flow.
Does CellarControl treat the entire length of the beer line?
Yes – From keg to tap, the entire beer line is treated. Cellar equipment such as beer pumps, FOB’s, manifolds or other parts do not effect the operation of the system.

Does long term use effect the beer lines?
No – The system has no negative impact on your beer lines from long term use. The system simply removes growth from within the lines – In fact, our clients have found that CellarControl extends the life of their beer lines.
Is the CellarControl system available only on rent?
CellarControl is only available on rental, as this is the most cost effective way to start saving money straight away, and allows us to maintain the system regularly.
How many lines can the system treat?
The system can treat between 1 and 6 main feed lines, installed on the drop lead for each keg. Please note – the number of systems required is not based on individual tap lines.
Does it matter how long the beer lines are?
With CellarControl installed in some of Australia’s largest venues, with beer line lengths exceeding 400 metres, we can treat beer lines of any size. Contact us if you have any questions.
Do I have to change my existing setup? Can the system be installed in an existing cellar room?
No changes to your existing equipment are required, and your lines are cleaned the same way as before. The system can be installed into almost any pub or club.
Does it matter how many kegs I turn over?
It doesn’t matter if you turn over 1 keg a week or hundreds of kegs a week – CellarControl will work for your premises.
Will the beer taste the same?
The beer will taste great, as if the lines were being cleaned weekly. With less chemicals being used and less growth occurring in the lines, the system will help maintain your beer at top quality.
How much will I save?
Check out our Savings Table to see how much your venue can save (based on average figures). Of course, every venue is different – therefore so are the savings – With some sites saving more than $30,000 a year. Contact us today to discuss the savings for your venue.
Does the system use much power?
No – The system only has minimal power requirements.
How do I know the system is working?
The system has indicator lights on the control unit and the activators, to show that the system is operating. This allows the cellar manager to ensure the system is in working order.
Can I contact one of your current clients?
Certainly, simply give us a call and we can put you through to one of our clients to discuss the system in more detail.
We have flowbacks and/or trade out so we have minimal wastage - Is it worth it for my venue?
We have many venues using flowback systems, or trading out to save wastage. Our system will save you even more on your beer wastage, while also reducing chemical usage and all other beer line cleaning costs – So it would still be a financial benefit for you to install CellarControl.
