Sanitising a Counter Pressure Filler

After much moaning from my son who, the savage that he is, wants to drink from the bottle I've decided to build a bottling station based on this:-

I bought it complete it's MUCH cheaper than buying the parts but I'm concerned about sanitising it, my thought is to pump percarbonate through it from alternate sides (beer flow then gas flow) then follow that up with star san. But will that be enough to get into all the nooks and crannies, chase out all the trapped bubbles and so on?

Obviously I don't want to fully disassemble it prior to use unless I really have to, so what procedure do you recommend?

I think I can make a station that will fill glass bottles and with one easy change pet bottles :) but I'll have to build to know for sure.

Thanks All. aamcle
