Good Value

Review by SamP on 5/16/2016

I took the advice from the other reviewers and just bought the steel head. The price is still less then the competition without, and I have a backup head. Used it twice so far, and I am pleased with the value. I have not used any other pumps for brewing, but have used pumps in salt water aquariums. Pump is appears to be built solid. I would recommend this pump. When I looked at getting a pump this was the best value around. Ordered on a Monday and received before Friday.

Can't beat it for the price

Review by Kenny on 5/4/2016

I have only used this a couple times. I originally I bought it for a basic HERMS setup and it works great. I also use it to recirculate the wort while I chill using an immersion chiller. Again, for the price, can't beat it.

Not sure how to rate

Review by Carlos on 3/6/2016

As with several of the reviewers, the plastic threading snapped off when I hand tightened a stainless steel nipple to the output. never had that problem with my other pump (a chugger). save yourself some headaches on brewing day and go ahead and order the replacement stainless head.

Great Bargain but get the stainless head

Review by Steve on 2/18/2016

Low cost, quiet, and works well but don't even think of using NPT fittings with Teflon tape on the plastic head. The pressure side port broke off mine on the first turn. Bought the stainless head and all is good. Maybe hand tightened O-ring seal connectors (garden hose style with matching threads) like the Blichmann's would be safe on the plastic head but those are $12 each so just get the stainless head and breath easy.

Great pump

Review by Matthew on 2/9/2016

This is a great little pump especially considering the price. It is quiet and powerful. I really like it. I am sure I will buy more. I did add the stainless steel head to the pump. I like it better than my other March pumps Very happy with this purchase and would recommend this to friends.
