Jockey Box or Jumper Box and How much CO2 will i go through?

A Coldbreak customer calls and asks the difference between a jockey box and a jumper box, and is not sure how much CO2 she is going to go through.

There is one main difference: Jockey boxes have the faucets mounted to the cooler, and jumper boxes have the beer faucets mounted externally. Whether to a beer tower or to a wall.

You'll go through approximately 1 pound of CO2 per half barrel of beer (15.5 gallons). 5 pound tanks will last you 5-6 full kegs. Double that with 10 pound tanks and always make sure you have a spare.
