Works Fine

Review by Gerald on 9/24/2016

This is my first pump, so I only have other comments and using industrial pumps in the brewing industry to compare it to. I ordered the stainless pump head, and I'm glad I did as the poly head seemed too weak. Changing the head was very simple. So far I have used it three times. I used it to transfer fifteen gallons of water from ground level to at least five feet up. I have also used it to whirlpool at flame out. So far I have it has had no problems with power drops or transferring from stresses caused by too much pressure. The only reason I give it four stars is that I believe a larger motor pump could transfer faster. Also it needs to be mounted to something so it won't tip forward . Otherwise I am completely satisfied. For the price I believe this is a great introduction to using a pump in brewing.

Mark II Keg King Pump

Review by Scott on 10/28/2016

Rock solid brew pump for more than half the cost of some others I won't name. I'm running my 15 gallons of wort from the pump into a filter and then the chiller and a long run of 25 feet to my Brewmaster, shall I say it flows rather easily with the pump pushing the way. I mounted mine with rubber isolators to keep a slight vibration on the brew table now no fear of my gear vibrating off the table. May have to get another for dedicated whirlpool. The only dislike is I got the stainless head and the machining for the output could have been more milled, had to do my own machining to stop a little bit of captivation the first run.

A Good Little Pump

I like this pump, it's well made, quiet and inexpensive . Even if you add the stainless head(recommended) it still costs much less than other wort pumps. I was impressed with these pumps, was expecting lesser quality for the price.

Mark II Wort Pump

Review by Tim Schievelbein on 12/28/2016

This pump performed without any problems! I would buy this pump over a Chugger/March pump any day. Its very cost effective when trying to set up your brewing station when money is tight. I also bought the stainless steel head, I would recommend this although the other head that came with the pump seemed very sturdy.

Pretty good pump

Review by John Anderson on 1/27/2017

Actually, I bought this right after Williams started offering them. I was going to wait till I had used it for a while to get an honest impression. I have it side by side with a Chugger on my brew stand and in short, it keeps pace just fine. I use it to recir. my HLT water and delivering my sparge water to my MT while my other pump pushes my Herms line. I've only had 1 issue with it. The rotating magnets that spin the impeller seemed to freeze up between batches. Not the impeller, just the rotating magnets that drive the impeller. I had to completely remove the head, spin them by hand to get them going, then re-attach the head. Afterwards it worked great again. That's only happened twice in all this time. Aside from that, it's done great. I did finally crack the original plastic head. I'm ordering the SS version today. I'd definitely recommended if your on a budget. Even if you get the SS head right off the bat, it's still less than the other pump base models with plastic heads.
