Saw this on the internet and it caught my interest.    I don't clean my lines/taps often enough because it's a beating and uses too much CO2.  

 

I just drop the aquarium pump in a bucket of BLC,  connect the tap, run a return line from the faucet to the bucket,  plug it in, and come back in 15-20 minutes.  Super easy.    30 bucks for pump and connector on amazon.

I have almost an identical setup. Works pretty well.

This is the setup I use, posted a few years ago.  Works well.

So is BLC worth it? seems like if I have to rinse I might as well use PBW and then star san.

 

I built something to recirc bu tended up building a weed sprayer based pump system because the auto pump one was too much hassle and i didn't use it.

Yes; worth every penny.  It's the only line cleaner I've ever used and I see no reason to switch.
