This 110 volt submersible water pump is perfect for running cooling water or for use with a keg washer. It features a ½" female thread port to accept standard 1/2" NPT male hose barbs, pipe fittings, etc. It also is a direct replacement fit for Mark's Kegwasher and KegLand Bucket Blaster.
Or put it in a bucket with ice water and use it to recirculate water for a wort chiller or KegLand Temp Twister Cooling Coil (connect with 3/8" tubing). Suction cups hold the base of the pump to the bottom of the bucket. Eight gallons per minute maximum flow, and it will pump up to 10' high (at a reduced flow). It features a butterfly valve on its inlet, so you can adjust the flow. It features a 6' power cord. 4" tall, 4¼" long, and 3" wide.
Important Notice: This should be plugged into a GFCI outlet for safety. Not for use in swimming pools, baths, or hot tubs. This is not a food grade pump, and is not rated for pumping food grade fluids except for water. It also cannot handle high temperatures, and should not be used at temperatures exceeding 130° F.

construction could be better
I bought this to replace the identical pump that came with my bucket blaster. the original cleaned less than 100 kegs and carboys before failing. the 1st time I used this one it slipped out of my hands and fell 2 feet to the floor. the end piece of the case broke off. it's still usable as is and if I need to replace the case at least I still have the old one to scavenge parts from.
Kegland Submersible Water Pump
This is a reasonably-priced pump that works adequately- pumping enough cooling water volume to maintain ferment temps at least 20 degrees below ambient in a 10-gallon fermentation, until.... the very cheaply-constructed (thus, the low price point?) plastic shaft that connects the magnetic drive to the pump propeller BREAKS! This break happened for me when I started the pump for only my third use/third brew. There were no closed valves, nor other causes of abnormally heavy load on the pump. Perhaps similar-sized submersible pumps that are installed in landscaping water fountains are better constructed, much more durable and long-lived for home brewing fermentation cooling applications. William's Brewing Responds: Sorry to hear of this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-759-6025 for replacement of this defective item. This is the same pump used in both Mark's Carboy Washer and the KegLand Bucket Blaster.
