Description 

 The MKII Pump from Keg King is a magnetic drive high temperature pump capable of pumping  hot wort at temperatures of up to 248° F.  It can pump up to 5 gallons per minute, making it perfect for 5 to 20 gallon systems.  The maximum height it can pump is 10’ although gallons per minute will be reduced at higher pumping elevations.

  The pump head and impeller are constructed of food grade polysulphone. The magnetic drive acts as a clutch allowing the user to put back pressure on the pump to slow down flow.  Like all magnetic drive wort pumps, it is not self priming - you must flood the pump head before turning on the pump.  The pump has ½” BSP male fittings on the inlet and outlet, which are compatible with all our ½” female NPT fittings. The inlet is in the center.

 The magnetic drive ensures no lubricated bearings are in contact with the liquid at all, so you can be sure there is no chance of any contamination of the liquid being pumped. The pump features a 67” power cord, and a mounting plate for permanent mounting.  The pump is 7¾” in overall length, and 3¼” wide including the mounting plate. The polysulfone head can be mounted at any angle on the pump to fit your application (an optional stainless head, William’s item Q80, is also available).   Shop around and compare, we think this is the best value currently available in a high temperature wort transfer pump.

 Important Safety Notice: This pump, like all 110 volt items that run in potentially wet areas, should be plugged into a GFI protected outlet for safety.

Great little pump!
This pump is great for the price.  Although I HIGHLY recommend you also purchase the stainless head for it.  I broke the outlet fitting because I tried to overtighten my ball valve.  My fault and not any sort of indication of the quality of the pump!  Great service, price and fast shipping!

Nice little pump
I purchased this and the ss head, The plastic head has a bit more flow 2 to 3% more than the ss head. The inlet and outlet are cleaner (smoother) with the plastic head = a small amount more flow, but it is a small amount. 
The pump is silent; well almost silent.
I have only started to use the pump, so only time will tell if it is a great deal but so far so good.

Great value
This is the 2nd one I purchased since I was so impressed with the fist one. Very quiet and a good value. You do need to order the SS pump head too. The plastic head seems a little weak and may break easily when installing fittings or valves.

Great deal on a powerful pump
Don't waste your money on those cheapy little 12v plastic pumps, this one has real power, very high flow rate and is extremely quiet, almost can't hear it running. I haven't brewed with it yet but I've done lots of testing of my automated step mash/boiling setup learning the controller and checking for leaks. I will be fitting a ball valve on the outlet for throttling back the flow for recirc, then open it up fully to circulate PBW when it comes time for cleanup. The polysulphone head is very sturdy and I had no trouble threading on 1/2" NPT camlock fittings; if the threads ever start to wear I'll upgrade to the stainless head, but for right now I'll be spending that $30 on other equipment.

quiet, sufficient, yet slightly lacking
The pump is nicely constructed. However it claims to out pump my old chugger that recently died. It is a little slower, but much smaller and quieter in comparison. So its a trade off. I like the concealed fan and electrical components, but it does not pump as fast as my old.  for example, my old pump could drain a 10 gal kettle being pushed through my 50' CFC in 10min, this pump does the same job in about 15min. not enough to return the product, but it does add a little time to the brewday.

Does the pump prime itself from the off position if the intake line is submerged?
No, the head and lines must be flooded before the pump will work.

Can this pump be mounted vertically (with the inlet pointing straight up)?
Yes, as long as the inlet is flooded with liquid before you turn it on.

Do you need special fittings because it's using BSP?
No, these have universal threads that work well with both 1/2" NPT and 1/2" British Standard thread fittings.

Do you have pump curve documentation available?
No. That information was not provided by the manufacturer.
